Growing by God’s Nudge

When my youth group comes up in a conversation, I know the question will follow, “How do you get your kids?” It’s a longer story than they may want to hear. But I never tire of telling it.

The story begins with a nudge from God to give one message to a group of skateboarders that had recently lost their youth pastor. I was in my forties and had hung up 20 years worth of all-nighters and retreats. One cold December night, an “up for a challenge” church elder and I stood before those skater teens, as they demanded answers from me, an outsider who didn’t even attend their church.

Tuning In to the Otherness of God

Spirituality is a lot like beauty, art, and love; everyone recognizes it, but it's hard to define it. Pick up many of the leading books, past or present, outlining techniques for spiritual growth and you'll find few definitions, only a casual attitude of assumed understanding. This is an indication of how both mystical and subjective spiritual experiences can be. However, most teenagers ask a lot of questions, and “I dunno” is usually not an acceptable answer to a serious faith question.
