For a while, we haven’t been going to church on Wednesday nights. It just wasn’t fitting into life. Wednesdays became a great night to be at home….however, now it’s Tyler’s only time to be at church, so our routine is changing.
However, our church does these group studies on Wednesday nights, and jumping in mid-semester isn’t ideal. So when we were there last night, I felt a little lost…like where do I jump in? If I join a group I’ll be behind in a study. I don’t really have the time to join choir (I’m involved in other Sunday ministries)….so what to do? Well, I went with my MIL to youth group. They have a message and worship and no small group time, so I wouldn’t really be intruding.
And it felt like time traveling.
It has been like 10 years since I was in youth group….and nothing has changed.
They still play crazy games.
And the boys still SMOKE the girls in those games.
And boys will still eat the leftover candy from the game off the floor.
And the girls still think it’s gross.
And the message is still great.
And the music is even the same. David Crowder. “You are more– Beautiful–than anyone — ever.” Loved it.
Kids were worshipping, praying, getting it.
God is still moving. Changing lives.
The good, the crazy, it was all still there. I’m glad to see nothing has changed. It didn’t need to.
