EVERYTHING IN YOUTH MINISTRY STARTS HERE

So I’m winging my way towards Indy this morning. I’m on a layover in Memphis and my flight is delayed.

Interesting how that doesn’t aggravate me. No, what bugged me was none of the power outlets worked. How inconvenient! I have to wait 1.45 hours AND I can’t recharge?

I will say what you may be thinking: I am an idiot. Well, I was for that moment anyway. What was I to do? How would I get by? How would my tightly scheduled youth ministry world ever keep spinning? Oh the inhumanity of it all!

I bet you would been a lot quicker to turn this gift of unplugged time around, wouldn’t you? You’re already thinking of ideas:

*People watch and pray
*Write notes to your student leaders
*Open up that hard copy of the Bible (it’s in your book bag somewhere!)
*Savor a cup of coffee from the Sbux that’s directly across from you.
*Strike up a conversation with the little old person sitting alone.

Those are great ideas! You’re so creative. Think I’ll try a few right now.

Thanks for the gift, God.

    This doesn’t help when the juice isn’t going to the outlets, but I started carrying a power strip in my backpack. Pull it out, join the huddle around the pillar with the outlet, and I’ve just turned 2 outlets into 6… and made 4 new friends in the process. It’s opened up some fun conversations. I know this isn’t your point, but couldn’t help commenting about it. Thanks for the blog!
