Labor Day Fun 2008

Tomorrow I am getting together with most of the people who were on my volunteer youth staff at the church were I was a youth pastor. I have not hung out with that entire group in about 3.5 years and that has been way too long. I developed such rich and good friendships with everyone and have maintained some contact with each of them, but it will be fun to have the whole gang back together again.

We used to hang out and play games together and just talk about life so much. It was on of the best teams that I was ever a part of. We modeled what the Christian life is all about and I believe it was the direct reason why that student ministry there was so successful. It really had not much to do with with me and a majority of it was devoted to all of us pastoring those teens together.

Hopefully one day soon I will be able to formulate another team together that can be just as good as that team and we can have a profound impact in the lives of students. Half the fun I had as a youth pastor was investing in the lives of those leaders and seeing them have meaningful relationships with teens. So tomorrow while people in Detroit will be celebrating the labor unions, I will be celebrating our union together and the labor of love that we collaborated on together.

I am a follower of Jesus, a husband to Kim, father to Hannah & Caleb, and the connections pastor at The River Church. The thoughts expressed here are my own and not The River Church's.
