In addition to scripture and youth group, we discussed pop culture and school life with a lot of the students at Outward. Pastor Robin and Cass asked some high school girls how they defined peace, and how their interests help them connect peacefully with their communities.
Pastor Robin and Cass were super impressed when they got into the topic of respect and peace with three middle schoolers at OUTWARD! in Syracuse last month. How do leaders of the world today differ from Jesus and the leaders of Roman times? How do people gain respect and keep it in this world? How do we lead, and what do people look for in leaders? Is it possible to do this all peacefully? What can we learn from scripture and the teachings of Jesus when we ask ourselves these big questions?
It's hard to draw conclusions for day-to-day life from history class, but these kids are most definitely making the connections. Listen in!
