In the Beginning...

"In the beginning God created the blog, and He saw that it was good."
...or something like that.
So Calvary Chapel's youth ministry now has it's own interactive blogsite, which is a part of our new website, our new theme - 180, and a new direction for our ministry. Over the next few weeks and months we hope to see this blog become a place to exchange information and ideas. We plan on using it to talk about events, convey some ideas, let you in on crazy fun stuff we find out about, and answer questions (such as those placed in our Question Box on Wednesdays). But even more than that, we want this to be a place to hear from you.
We want to know what is on your heart. What is it that is keeping you up at night? What are you excited about in your life? What is hard in your life? What are your dreams? What are your nightmares? How does God fit into your life? What about church confuses you?
See, we all have these questions. And for so long there has not been a safe place to ask them. We want this blog to be a place of community where we can start to see that a different world is possible. A place that communicates how relevant faith in Christ is for today, even if we don't have all the answers. A place where we can converse about our journey and offer encouragement to press on.
When Jesus invited His first disciples to come and follow Him, he was offering an opportunity to get to know who He was. Those relationships changed the world forever. We believe that relationship can do the same today. So we invite you to join us in turning the world right side up! God Bless.

This is amazing! I'm so excited about the changes going on in our church! And I just pray that everyone catches on to what we're trying to do here, so that we can make a difference!
I also hope, that I'm not the only one who sits infront of a computer all day, so that we can utilize this wonderful resource!
