UMC Lead: Alanon, Churches, and Pastors: Part 1

The other week I had an opportunity to go to a treatment center and sit in on a friends and family session.

Sparta FUMC Youth!: It’s a letter….to you!

Remember when you were 16 with that ridiculous hair?

And how you’d thought that by the time you got to here, to now, it was going to be good? That by now everything would be all good.

That by now you’d know down in the very marrow of your bones, what it’s like to really live loved. That you’d be known. Fully known. And wholly embraced.

That the Big Dream would have happened, that the peace and the purpose and the Big Point would be under your skin, that the awkward would be gone and that you’d finally fit and that your life made a real difference, you’d made a real mark, and that you really mattered.

The letter is called “Dear You” and can be read in it’s entirety here….

give hope to a child in need. Sponsor a child today.
