Getting started...

I once took a youth ministry course with a prof who pointed out that teenagers were asking the questions," who am I?", "where do I get value?" and "who are my people?"  These are foundational questions for all of us because they are at the heart of who we are. Indeed where we get the answers to these questions from will shape us. The reality is that God created us to find our sense of identity in him, to find our value in him and to find our sense of belonging with him. I believe that when we look to other people, places or things than God to answer the "who am i?" questions, that we will always come up still wanting. 

Over the next few months the purpose of this blog will be to flush out this topic of identity. I will be looking specifically at how this relates to teenagers, but I believe that this blog should still be of interest to those of you who don't work with teenagers or are no longer teenagers. The fact of the matter is that this is not a ministry concern for just those under 20 years of age. Hopefully you visit often.

 Until next time...
