Thanks for sharing your youthful experience. I agree, that every youth needs to be in a Christ-centered youth group. What a great impact it made on your life!

What a wonderful childhood. Thanks for letting us in.
I enjoyed hearing about your escapades. I'm surprised how much a decade can change attitudes. Christians were just freaks when I went to high school. Later when my kids went, I was so impressed by their lack of fear about sharing their faith. They may have gotten teased occasionally, but they persevered. I wasn't as brave as they and you. You told a powerful story that captured the topic and touched my heart.
A very realistic story of those years of wildness but thank God He never gives up on us. Thanks for sharing. Well done.

I'm glad you had such a positive experience in a youth group. On topic, and one message in it that stands out to me is unconditional love. That's a good reminder for pretty much all of us.

You've made a very strong case why youth should be encouraged to participate in Christian activities during their most formative years. Good for you !!
I truly enjoyed your glimpse of the Jesus movement. My travels with our college choir (then Central College-now Southern Wesleyan University) left me with some wonderful memories. Your piece is written excellently from start to finish, concluding with the final summary and challenge.

I remember the 70's well and the Jesus movement but if I hadn't personally experienced the same type of church youth group environment growing up as you did, I would have felt "from the reading of this "part" of this wonderful life experience.

Well written.
This is fun. You took me right along with you on your trips.
I enjoyed this very much.
Congratulations on ranking 16th overall. Happy Dance!

Yeah, I remember those days! I didn't get to wear kaftans and beads, or groove to the latest happening, though.

Thanks for taking me down memory lane. Well written.
