So, recently I was talking with an older lady who is part of another church in our town. (You don’t know her or the church, trust me.)
She was talking about the recent youth pastor that was hired by the church. She was very excited. She said, “We finally have someone who cares about our young people.”
I’ll be honest… I’m still scratching my head about her statement.
Certainly she doesn’t mean that no one else cares for the teenagers – well, except for the person paid to do something with them. So, what did she mean?
I guess, the best spin that I could put on it, is that she meant that no one was doing things with the young people or spending time with them, so they hired someone for that purpose, and she’s glad that there’s someone to do it now.
Maybe that’s what she meant… maybe not. I don’t know. Like I said, I’m still scratching my head.
