Relationships & RollerCoasters

We’re off today to Charlotte for our first Cornerstone Youth Retreat. Our first session tonight will be about relationships. Here is the plan for what we are talking about.

  • Purity in a Passionate World – We should focus on staying close to God. Too often we focus on what not to do, not what we should do
  • Rating Your Dating – Should you date? How old should you be? Is it ok to date non-Christians? We’ll dig in and study dating and our relationships with the other sex.
  • Waiting For Mating – We’ll spend some time talking about God’s design for sex in a relationship. We’ll again talk about purity and intimacy in marriage.

I’m excited about how this has all come together in the last few days. We have 14 youth going with us. After the first session. We’ll split up into guys and gals and talk about rollercoasters in life. Those things that take you on a wild ride, often away from God.

Saturday is Carowinds. We’ll spend all day waiting in line and getting hot. But it will be fun. I also just found out that Carowinds was just bought this month by CedarPoint, see here for details.

Pray for our safe travel and that the youth will be challenged to take a stand for God.
