I don’t generally talk about ‘current events’ on my blog, but this hit a little close I guess, because I know a lot of people who’ve gone through YWAM (Youth With A Mission). Plus my nephew is currently in another mission school that is basically the same type of deal. And one of my other nephews dropped out of our church’s mission school. It saddens me that the media is trying to put the lovely ‘church messed him up’ twist on it… but maybe his church did. It also saddens me that churches do sometimes mess people up. We’re supposed to be the "Body of Christ", and then we beat people up. I hate that. I suppose this incident is also going to give homeschooling a black eye for awhile. Because all our homeschooled kids are unsocialized freaks, you know. I also just get so sad thinking how messed up our world is… we have to worry about things we’ve never had to before. Wednesday night is child/youth night at our church, and the youth building is across the parking lot from where the little kids meet. We (my sister and I) dropped off our younger kids then were headed out to our cars, when we saw firetrucks and paramedics at the youth building. Now, it just turned out that some silly teenage boy jumped off something he shouldn’t have been on in the first place – weird, eh??! – and hurt himself. The sad thing is that the first response of each mom walking out was the initial fear that something horrid like a shooting had occured. It’s a terrible thing that our minds have to go there now.
