by: Tyler Neely While I had grown up saying I was a Christian, I never actually knew Jesus or recognized that he was someone who I could have a relationship with until my senior year of high school. The first time that I learned who Jesus was, and heard that he was more than some archaic religious icon that my grandparents made me learn about, was when two of my best friends, Nick and Nathan, sat me down one night and shared their experience and faith with me. Young Life had just recently started at my school and [...]

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service.   WE PRAY: A PERSONAL PRAYER Gracious God, You know, God, that I have always been one of those pushing for movement, for things to change. I have been one who was ready to lean forward. I used to walk around singing “The times, they are a changin…”.   But as I am older, I am less ready for change. I yearn for peace. Tranquility. Now, I find myself humming “Peace like a river.” I find myself more interested in quiet than I am in [...]

I want to make their decisions for them. I am so arrogant as [...]

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in service and generosity. A PERSONAL PRAYER It is a new year, God. A brand new start. I stand in awe of your love that always gives a new beginning, the chance to start over with you with a clean slate. Forgiven. As far as the east is from the west, so far do you remove our transgressions from us. Thank you, God, and you know how much I want to live life for you. But God, you also know how much [...]
