Accepting Students

Last night as we sat at Leon’s eating $5 very good pizzas with the Garnett youth group–Thanks, Amy!–I thought once again about how cool these students are who allow their preacher and Jill to hang out with them on occasion and also accept young padawan Jacob, my son, into the group. They could think I’m too old and he’s too young but this is one of the most accepting, serving, loving bunch of young people I know.

Thanks for who you are and what you do. The guys were heading back to the Youth Hall for an Avatar: the Last Airbender (cartoon version) marathon and even asked me to join them. I of course am a purist Avatar (blue guys) fan only but in the spirit of acceptance, I do accept these guys and their Last Airbending ways.
