I feel like every time I get home from a class at uni, I could easily sit down and write a tumblr post.
Today I had ‘Youth and Spirituality’ class. My lecturer is an awesome spoken word poet and I love the way poets see life. I love the way poets teach. I love that God has blessed these people with such a unique perspective because it is a much needed perspective.
Today was one of those ‘I am so meant to be here doing this’ moments.
We were talking a little about adolescent development and what makes someone an ‘adult’.
We were talking about how youth ministries handle youth and their development.
We were talking about how there’s a huge pressure to be perfect in Christian circles, and how that can push young people away from God.
We were talking about how 60-80% of young people in church will leave by the age of 22 for one reason or another.
And all of it both breaks my heart and encourages me to make a change.
