Join my journey
Whenever I go to church, I look around and wonder where are all of the young adults? It seems that most churches focus on getting the kids in church and providing programs and services for the older members but what about the young adults, those in the 22-40 age group?
In my opinion, this group needs help the most. Many of US have one foot in the club and the other in the church. We are faced with so many important life decisions. This is a critical time in our lives to make decisions that will forever affect us. We are thinking about getting married, starting families, buying homes and putting all of our faith in God.
However, it seems that many churches make you believe that it is impossible to be Christian and cool. They almost make it seem like you have to choose. I refuse to believe that God wants us to be unhappy. Becoming a Christian should be one of the best experiences in your life. No, it doesn’t mean that you won’t have any more problems but it does mean that you believe in a higher power that will forever protect you and provide you with the grace and mercy to persevere through anything.
This blog category, Christian and Cool, will highlight some of my struggles as a young, single mother trying to find my way. Feel free to leave me comments when you think I am right on it and comment when you think I may be going astray. Motivational Speaker Keith Brown says, “If you’re the smartest in your clique, you need a new clique.” I want to share my Christian journey so that we can learn from each other.
Remember: it’s ok to be Christian and cool…
