Dec 21, 2012 Doomsday or Newday?
Thu, 5 Jan 2012If you're one of my Facebook friends or want to be, check out my New Years Eve cartoon. It's the one showing the Mayan stone carver who shows the new Mayan calendar to the King and says, "I only had enough room to go up to 2012." The King replies, "Ha, That'll freak somebody out someday."
So what's your plans for 2012? If you're like me you want to invite all your secular and sacred friends to a "Dec 21, 2012 Doomsday Party - NOT" Okay anyone who is in youth ministry is a bit messed up, we both know it.
But let me come "back to the future" cause what I really want to say or ask is are you really living and leading like it's 2012 for real and if it was the last year of your ministry life what would you do different? As an original classic Mac owner, I'm reading the biography of Steve Jobs and one key iconic phrase his genius left us is to "Think Different".
How would things be different in your personal life and professional ministry if indeed Dec 21, 2012 was the last day? My father faced that recently when a bump on the head sent him into the ICU and brain surgery. He came out fine but it refined his desire to tell every nurse, doctor, and visitor about the gift of life and eternal life.
Well, I don't know all the things and decisions you face as you start out 2012 but I sure hope taking your group on a dynamic custom designed mission trip is on the top of your list. Even if we all make it through Dec 21st, one thing you can leave as a legacy is showing your group that life and serving others is more than a New Year Eve "sleep over" or dumb Doomsday party.
Come join us on an adventure of your life to change their lives.
