The Face Of God

It is quite easy to see the Face of God in a Newborn...in a Toddler.

It gets much more difficult as we grow...

Thus, many find it easy to criticize, berate and many times belittle the work, the journey, the discovery and the challenges of a Tween and especially of a Teen.

I am just as guilty as the rest for saying that Teens are God's punishment for having sex!

For the record, that still and always WILL make me laugh!  Hate to say it, but I know I was to my Mom and my kids can be for me as well.

Thank God for Humour! It helps to make the yoke lighter.

But in all seriousness, we many times fail to see God in the works or our Youth.
We fail to give them the Credit that they deserve.

I have read too many articles that go on and on as to how the Church is losing numbers in droves.  How the Youth are apathetic and that there is little hope for Our Future...

Well, they are WRONG!  Dead and Thank-God Wrong!

Our Youth are Filled with the Holy Spirit!  Our Youth are set Ablaze with the Fire of God's Love!

I see it all the time!  I am very privileged to be able to work with Youth.  I am honoured and humbled to be able to partake in some of their Amazingly Awesome Projects!

Here, I share with you a Video that some members of the STJW Youth Ministry, 9th Grade Members, created in response to a video that went viral a couple of weeks back...you may recall it, the one that tells us why Jesus hates Religion??

Again, here is these kids' response.  Enjoy it and please, Share it! What these kids have to say needs to be heard. 


And I hope that it Inspires You and Provides you with the Strength to also Stand Up for Our Faith...

  1. There are those who take great delight in deriding our Youth, and Youth workers within the church. Our Lord speaks to everyone. This video is a great lesson for us all.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Blessings and prayers,
    Ann.
