Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

After a While, Things Start To Slip…

November 25th, 2016

Have you noticed in your life that if you’re not super-deliberate and driven about something, it kind of fades?

I used to be really into guitar. I used to be, like, good. Not any more! I’ve let it slip.

I bet Robbie was better at basketball a month ago than he is today. He’s let his skills slip. Psh. Come on, Robbie. (Just kidding. For those who don’t know… he messed his leg up a few weeks ago.)

I took Algebra, then Geometry, then Algebra 2. Since I’d taken a year off Algebra to do Geometry, when I got to Algebra 2, my skills had slipped! It was horrible! I felt so dumb.

Over time, things start to fade unless you’re really passionate about taking care of them. Too much else in life demands our attention, huh?

Well, with the youth ministry, I want to revisit a few things that have slipped, a little. Nothing bad. Just a few reminders:

1. Please sit with your parents, or in the youth section for services. We’ve had a few slip-ups, distractions, and other stuff that makes me remind you of this now. If you could do that, it would help everyone.

2. In class, please have only the seniors on the back row. I’ll always allow guests back there if they’re more comfortable. But if you’re not a senior, please don’t put it on me to move you. “He’ll tell me to move if he wants me off the back row.” No. I probably won’t. I’m too scared. 

3. That’s all. You guys are doing great. You’re serving. You’re singing. You’re in church. You’re doing GREAT in your BIBS. You’re registered for camp. You’re reading your 3 Sons book from Bro. Schwanke. You’re coming on door-knocking. Everything’s going well. Keep it up.

I love you all. Love God. Love others. Do right.

-Bro. Ryan
