Weird, or Too Weird?

PP - Smith

I think it is a common question many Youth Pastors ask. Am I weird, and that is a cool thing? Or am I too weird, and no one ever wants to hang out with. I think I like to flirt with that edge of too weird. I think many of the High School students think I’m weird enough, and so I am deemed worthy enough to hang out with, but I also love to push that boundary. Today would have been on of those “too weird” days.

I shared how my time with God has been going as of late. To emphasize some items I used a few pictures to drive home some of my thoughts. I think I pushed the limit to what they really wanted to see. Here is just one example:

Doesn’t this picture say that I am missing a connection with some students?

How To Deal With Difficult People

Dealing with Difficult People

Matthew 18:15-17 has a great process to live by when dealing with the people that offend you. Probably the best thing we can do is to love those difficult people. Romans 12:17-21 goes right against our gut instinct to repay evil for evil by showing our enemies (difficult people) love. We talked about some really good stuff in the High School ministry.

I also gave some practical stuff for students to do when dealing with those difficult individuals. You can check them out in this blog post from Think Simple Now.
