I'm a little cheesed off right now. But I'm going to take a moment to recollect myself before continuing with this blog.
I think it's awesome that the college kids have their own "youth group" to go to now. They need it because they aren't in high school anymore and they are dealing with different things so it's good that they are able to have something like that for their age group. I also like how it's given the seniors of this year an opportunity to step up in leadership. We aren't under the wings of the college kids anymore so it has forced us to be pushed out of our comfort zones. But what I do not like about all of this is that the college kids don't really inter-mingle with us like they used to, and vice versa. Yeah, there are still the rare hangouts when everyone goes to the Bee's or something, but it's definitely not the same.
I'm not trying to live in the past or anything, but I really miss those friendships that I have. I feel like I don't really know them anymore because they are always busy going to Busch Gardens or camping with each other, and we are busy with camp and Winter Retreat and missions trips. There's no connection anymore. And everytime I talk to one of the college kids, they all say that they miss hanging out with us.
So I've come to this conclusion: I think that Tuesday nights should be how they are, and so should Wednesday nights, but I think there should be a thing, not necessarily an official church deal, but something that gets both groups of students hanging out with each other so that connection is reconnected. Whether it be once a week, every other week, or once a month, there needs to be something planned that will make it so we can all hang out. An unofficial something, but something that is still organized. And I'm not talking about Beach Worship. That doesn't count. But I digress.
I guess what I'm getting at is that I miss my other friends and not hanging out with them as much. I love you guys.
peace, love, and new ideas.
