About going back to college… well I am not really going back to college, but my husband and I have started a college aged journey group (Bible Study). Our first meeting was last week and we did kind of a meet and greet and tell our story type thing. This week we actually start our study!
So, why am I nervous?
*Am I prepared enough?
*What if no one shows up?
*What if they get bored?
*What if I am not cool enough?
Such silly reasons I know! Anthony and I have led two couples groups before and I have led a womans group and I do not think I have ever been this nervous. I think part of the problem is though I never felt like the stakes were as high as they are now. Statistically speaking the college aged student has a very high drop out rate in the church. Plus, it is really a time where you are introduced to so many different things- both good and bad.
My prayer for this group is that it is one that they can come to and learn more about God and what His Word says. I also pray it is a safe place for them to be where they can find a positive circle of influence and a place where they can seek accountability.
I am off to finish preparing and clean up some!
