I’m hitting the parenting danger zone. My eldest son is nearly 12. He’s started youth group and goes to a Christian school. But he’s meeting more people, accessing more information online and watching the news. He is moving outside of our ‘safe bubble’ and being hit square in the face with issues that he needs to understand and form an opinion about.
You’re excited. You’ve spent the whole week working on this costume for this party. It’s going to be so sik. You ring the door bell, imagining the faces of your friends when they see you in the gear. The door opens and you’re greeted with shock, which turns embarrassingly into a snort and a snigger.
It wasn’t a costume party, and you’re the only one dressed up.
Sticking out like a sore thumb.
Being a Christian can feel like being the odd one out in your friendship circles.
On the last day of Term 2, close to 300 youth gathered in churches and living rooms for the Onward conference livestream, and to hear how we as Christians can reach out to God in the midst of hard times and suffering.
With only 7 sleeps until Onward Youth conference, now is the time to gather your youth group and to register together! With our panel of local and international speakers addressing a range of hot topics, we believe that Onward will greatly benefit youth who are working out how to best live out their faith in 2021.
