As I watched this video (and others like it) I couldn’t help but wondering… what can we do?
Two quick realities:
FIRST – It’s scary out there in vocational youth ministry. Let’s acknowledge the reality that the average youth worker is not far from poverties grasp.
SECOND – If someone really wanted to start a revolution in their community, they’d stand up and say… we can do something about this.
Let’s celebrate a tribe of youth workers who transform their ministries to advocacy for the struggling, for the newfound homeless, and the silent hurting. (Not that being poor implies you’re automatically hurting.)
My prayer for fellow church leaders is that we continually ask– How can we be good news in this neighborhood? Right here. Right now. In this situation.
