God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore, we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea…
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our fortress.
Psalm 46:1-2, 6 ESV
Adults play a vital role in the lives of young people both in and outside of the Church. In your interactions with youth – even apart from your role in preparing for special events such as Gathering – you provide Christian leadership and care for the young people in your congregation and community. Sometimes this may bring you great joy. Other times this may seem like a daunting, tiresome task.
As you prepare to take a group to the Gathering, may God be your real, present refuge and strength. The Lord of hosts is with you – now and always. Thanks for all you do!
