sometimes the most simple things become the most profound.

so all of our young people at church were sharing part of their stories last night. we played lots of games, ate lots of food and then everyone had been challenged to bring an object, a story, a song, an image, or a verse which summed up their story with God.

there was so much variety and creativity as we listened to song lyrics, looked at paintings, heard books read and thought about different symbols.

it was all so good. just a privilege to listen. (see my last post!!)

and then a 13 year in our group pulls out a packet of wrigley’s chewing gum. ‘this sums up my story’ he says, ‘because the ad says its about getting a little closer………and i need to get a little closer to God.’
