I am a youth pastor and a drug educator. I go into inner city schools and do programs. lets discuss ways to connect to this generation, ways to give them hope and love, a vision for life. Ways to get them into Church or to keep them in church. I have learned a few things over the years and one of the things i have learned is this: our society is fostering such a disconnect with relationships (everything is Social media) We are loosing our youth. We need to find ways to give them hope again, a vision for life, a reason to get up. I know Jesus is the answer but we first need to break down walls of pain, disappointment, hurt, anger before we can even sit at a table and talk about true freedom.
