It’s that time of year again. For one spectacular weekend at many churches, senior pastors grin hard while they pass the weekend service reigns into the hands of over-paid, over-valued (or is that under-paid and under-valued…) student pastors for a little “here’s what we taught your kids all year.” If you sense a tone here, it’s only because when I was a youth pastor, I never got to do a Senior Weekend :,-(. Anyway… Last year, I posted a great message by the most creative, dynamic, influential and effective youth guy I’ve ever met: my brother Matt (@matthew_bond). Click HERE to watch.
This year, Matt and his middle school counterpart, Chris Sturgeon, team-taught. The message is… well, freaking awesome. While Matt has this up on his blog, I couldn’t resist putting it here. One, he’s my brother and my hero. Two, the message focuses on something very near and dear to my heart: cross-pollination of the generations in Christian community. Have a listen and give Matt and Chris a shout in the comments here, on Matt’s blog, or on Vimeo.
