We cannot passively and calmly wait in our church buildings; we need to move from a pastoral ministry of mere conservation to a decidedly missionary pastoral ministry.

This summer was simple. This summer was abundant. We had everything from eating with no hands, lots of soccer, prayer, youth group, steubenville, and just sharing in ordinary life together. Most days weren't huge. They were simple, and consisted of just hanging out on the sidelines of the soccer field. I remember feeling frustrated during soccer and thinking I wasn't doing enough as I sat and tried to strike up conversations. These conversations were short and sometimes a little awkward, and I struggled to see see how this could be ministry. Yet there was something special in seeing someone almost every day and just sharing in life together. In kicking a soccer ball around, in hearing about their siblings, eating raspas, and creating random handshakes, we formed friendships. Most days were small, most days were simple, yet the relationships formed were special. This summer I've found that consistency matters. Consistency matters in our own lives and in the lives of others. Consistency matters in prayer. The Father's love is constant. Let us also be constant. #lifeofjoy

Today I spent the day riding roller coasters with teens, being made fun of on said roller coasters, and hanging out on the beach. It was a day full of community, joy, and laughter. I can't imagine a better way to start wrapping up the summer with these wild teens in this #lifeofjoy
