The 2016 National LCMS Youth GatheringRegistration for The 2016 National LCMS Youth Gathering will begin this fall. The event will take place July 16 - 20, 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana. I know it seems like this is a long way off, but we have to start planning, preparing and saving now if we want to go. For more information on this Youth Gathering go to (https://www.facebook.com/#!/LCMSYG).
Connecting With God Through TechnologyAs a mom and former youth leader, I am often reminded that I am not very "tech savvy", especially when it comes to the way you young people like to get information.
As teenagers, your life is all about getting information (and giving information) through reading other's viewpoints and expressing your own opinions via social media, texting, tweeting, chatting, skyping and whatever else it is you do/use with your friends. I admit, I can't keep up with all the ways you teens give and get information.
I do know that the traditional way --sitting and listening to someone and carrying-on a (face-to-face) conversation-- is not a preferred method. So, please allow me to attempt to "get with the times" or at least attempt to act like I am a little clued in.
I found a few websites, geared toward Christian youths, that I want you all to check out. Now, I don't want these links to be substitutes for you coming to Sunday School or Church, but rather a conversation starter and/or resources for you all to use to get information about God from other places, as well as, from Sunday School and Church. Let me know what you think.
Oh, and BTW, if you discover any similar sites, please feel free to share them with me and your fellow youth group members.
