As I continue to search for methods to help teens and college students understand who God is, and how they can interact with Him in the Real World, I'm constantly being challenged. Generational differences, educational variables, and cultural awareness often taint our view of God's presence in the world today. I'm actually seeing a growing interest in a Deism movement where students don't actually believe God is moving in the World Today. So, My intention is to help students see a faith journey clearly with real people. So here's where you come in.
When I travel around speaking to different churches, different schools, and different places where people follow God; I find so many different ways people feel tuned in to their own spiritual journey, so to speak. If you wouldn't mind taking a few minutes helping me accumulate various ways how YOU connect with God, I would appreciate your help.
Here are a few questions to guide your thinking...
1.) When do you find your connection with God to be most REAL? (i.e. during tragedy, during worship services, helping others, etc.)
2.) How do you pursue your own spiritual growth and development?
3.) What are ways your friends tend to search for God?
4.) What keeps people from following God?
5.) If you're willing, could you share a story where you wanted God to show up, but for whatever reason felt like God left you?
You can comment here at the bottom of this post, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I won't share your story with personal information EVER, (unless of course you want) but I think it's important to allow more students to see the various ways God is moving in the hearts and minds of people around the world.
There are over 150K people reading this blog, and my hope is there will be a few willing to help. You will be directly helping the education of teenagers and college students in real time.
Thank you for your help. I really appreciate your willingness to spend 5-10 minutes educating and mentoring young people from afar.
Thank you. You guys are the best readers a blogger could ever ask for.
