This week we got caught up with everyone on Wednesday-there had been some flooding in the basement so we got the youth room put back together and enjoyed some pizza while we watched Gospel Journey Maui. Our topic was relationship vs religion and they actually really surprised me when they said they didn’t think of religion as a negative word. So maybe it’s out-growing the idea of rituals and traditions that don’t necessarily bring us closer in our friendship with the Lord-even so we got to talk about how important it is that we have a relationship, that’s a 2-way thing, with Jesus and what that looks like at home and school. That has really been the underlying challenge all year-to make our faith known by how we live our lives out in front of our friends and family. On Saturday River and I went to the Jeff track meet (little chilly, not gonna lie) and watched Zhanna run the 100 meter hurdles-she was seriously awesome!!!!
Then we headed over to Justin and Kristen’s house with the JH to start prepping our youth vegetable garden!! It was really hard work but I just know the fruits of our labor will be magnificent. God is good to us and was good to us all week as we hung out with 12 of our favorite people!!!!!!
