Firing up for 2010

Here's a post I wrote that reminds me why I keep doing what I'm doing, namely, telling people at the campus I'm working at something they don't want to hear.

Andrew Moody made this comment on the post:

the major problem with teens is that they are stuffed full of guilt feelings over stuff that is either secondary (pleasing parents, relationships with friends) or just stupid (weight-issues, popularity). ISTM that the trick is to preach a gospel that resists the gospel of the devil (=“you are worthless”) and replaces it with the gospel of Christ (=“you are incredibly valuable - AND a sinner in utter need of redemption”).

Thanks Andrew for the reminder!
