Last night the high schoolers watched me throw all my plans out the window and we found ourselves reading from Philippians and praying for each other in Culvers over ice cream!
Yesterday morning I chatted with a few students who were having less than wonderful weeks, and when I walked downstairs and saw a further 3 students who were obviously not having a great day, I felt like it might be a good day to focus on the people rather than the program. After floating the idea to a couple students I grabbed the van keys, loaded them into the vans, and off we went!
Once we had made it to Culvers and ordered I read Philippians 2 as a devotional and challenged the students to continue looking for the interests of others throughout their week. We ate our ice cream, took prayer requests, and our students prayed for one another.
It’s an honor to do ministry with your students, and I hope that interactions like these continue to reinforce the idea that faith is more than a set schedule or expectations, but a way of life.
Next week we will be talking about temptation, and I will have some updates about the Christian Sexuality material!
Have a wonderful week!
