This week at youth group, we reviewed the movie To Save a Life, which happens to be the only Christian movie I like. Actually, The Buttercream Gang holds a special place in my heart. Before we got started with the lesson, we had a few announcements, including this video about our upcoming American Idol Lip Sync Contest.
I really couldn’t go right on to teaching after this, so we took a food break. When we came back, we started reviewing the movie for a few minutes. We got right to the good part, though, which involved Jared Heighton coming up and talking a little about his depression. It went something like this.
I am very blessed with the youth leadership team God has given me. For one of them to get up and be so open about something that is pretty hard to talk about is huge. It really allows the students to connect with their leaders in a new way.
God bless America. Flipdoodle!
