A Change in the Weather

It’s getting a little cooler. The other day, I wore a long sleeve shirt. I don’t do that…it takes a lot for me to wear a long sleeve shirt, but nevertheless, it needed to be done. I regretted it later, as I got very warm, but that’s par for the course, really. The point is, we are entering a new season…the earth continues to rotate and move…things are changing, and while it’s hard to adjust to at times, there are a lot of great things to come. (You know Christmas is out there, waiting!)

A lot has happened in our youth group since my last post about a month ago…there have been some changes. Some of those changes can be hard to adjust to, I get that, but change can still bring about wonderful things, even as we celebrate the wonderful season that just ended.

As I take over the Youth Pastor position for our group, I am looking forward to what is to come. Last week, I truly enjoyed our brainstorming session as we all weighed in on what we would like to see and do; it was encouraging to see everyone invested in this group that we call our own. And last night, as we started our new study, I looked around the room as the ukulele played and we all all sang together…that was a special moment to me and I am grateful to be a part of it with you.

And when it comes down to it, I think that’s the best part about change: The fact that we get to experience it with each other. That’s what I’m looking forward to…more ukulele worship, more serving, more games, more food, more skits, more growing, more learning…more change. Change just means we’re not standing still…we continue to move. And that’s a good thing. So don’t stay frozen in place…ring your bells from your heart…because simply staying put isn’t that exciting.

So be excited me with me…It’s getting a little cooler.
