Youth: Those Younger People

The stories I could tell about my time as a youth leader (in charge of teenagers) would probably be quite the oddity. Or maybe it’s just how it is…

A favorite moment:

We took some teens on a weekend trip in a eleven passenger van. We were in some little hick town and a kid just ripped his loose tooth out. Blood everywhere, the only places open on a Friday night at 7pm were the bar and the tattoo parlor. We went to the tattoo parlor, got paper towel, piled back in our van, and set off to find a restroom.

I love working with youth, they’re some very interesting people. Investing in them, and raising them up to be leaders to their peers, is some hard work.

But it’s a good work.
