You and I are not the coolest people in the world to a junior higher. High schoolers are.
High school students are the most in-touch with what they are going through, they recently made it out alive! We are too old, we didn’t have cell phones in JH, we weren’t dealing with the fear of academic excellence, and we weren’t worried about global terrorism. High school students are able to connect on a deep, authentic level that will resonate with people within their same generation.
High school students can communicate better than us. I try so hard to speak in the same language as JH kids, but I don’t speak Beiber. High school students have the ability of walking in the middle of theological concepts but are up to snuff on the cultural slang (unlike me).
This weekend we are starting a two week series where two high school students are talking about how to survive our world. The message will be relevant and biblical and make more sense that anything i have ever said. Our junior high students will come home with a bit of wisdom you and I only wish we could accomplish.
PS. If you know where the title of this post comes from, you are awesome.
