a sort of addition to one of my earlier posts

Hello. I was thinking more about my Love post, and thought this would be an interesting idea for a youth group, but you’ll have to tell me what you think.

Now, I know some youth groups give assignments like “read your bible” or “read this bible verse and meditate on it” (I never understood why Christians didn’t like meditation when it’s firmly in the Christianese dictionary…), but rarely do they give assignments that are, quite frankly, useful.

What if a youth group started giving assignments like “do something loving for someone you don’t know”, or “help someone with a task, without asking for anything in return”? How crazy powerful would that youth group be? I would bet their attendance would go up, because other people would start seeing a REAL change in people, and I bet people’s relationships with each other and with God would dramatically improve.

But that’s just me… maybe I’m being optimistic. What do you think? Would this work?
