World peace. Just economic systems. An end to racism and sexism — I have a lot of things that I hope for. And while I do think that we make headway on a daily basis (here at All Saints and the many other places that all of us live our lives) on these big, weighty topics, sometimes I have to concern myself with the “small” places where I can make a difference.
In comes youth group… talk about a group where the advent themes of hope, patience, waiting, and waiting, and waiting really come into play. Don’t get me wrong—I absolutely love every young person that I get to work with—I also know that they, like so many of us, are on a journey, and sometimes that journey is messy, unorganized, and doesn’t always have a clear path.
