Last year I wrote a series on my blog about the family-integrated church. A couple of nights ago my husband and I watched the documentary Divided that addresses the issue of whether teens are better off (spiritually speaking) of attending youth group or worshiping with their families. Big D and I both agreed the movie is well-made and thought-provoking. It's available through Vision Forum.
The young man who made the movie did so in order to find answers to the question of why young adults are leaving the church in droves never to return. He interviews Ken Ham, Scott Brown, Voddie Baucham, Doug Phillips, and others. I already knew what all of them would say, since I've read their books. More interesting to me were his interviews with former youth pastors who have come to the same conclusion through their experiences. If you're interested in this issue, I highly recommend viewing this film.
- I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
