Youth Group Dynamics
Tonight we were invited to help our church's youth group as judges of a scavenger hunt game. The game itself was
fun and I enjoyed helping out for a good cause. However, it was the interaction of the group that I found most impressive.
10:14 pm cdt
The kids were a mix of junior and senior high students, and most of them were male. Oh sure, there was the typical
flirting between genders, and some good old-fashioned teasing with the older to the younger kids.
me the most was how most of the students made over the leader's children: ages 1, 2 and 5. Those wee ones were snuggled, tickled,
jostled, hugged and wrestled by the youth members. I'm not sure who enjoyed the interaction more: the toddlers,
the teenagers or Tammy!
What a great display of fellowship at its best.
