Engaging with Young People

Posted by Liz Perraud at

By Rev. Thom Lamb, Grace Presbyterian Church, Temple, TX I will never forget when Robert came and asked if I would accompany him for the talent show at what was then known as LOGOS Conference East. I was happy to help and one afternoon we sat down to practice. It did not go well. Robert could barely carry a tune and he wanted to sing the song, Friends by Michael W. Smith. I really tried to convince him to sing something a little more in his range, but Robert was insistent, and I was fearful that he would embarrass himself....

By Robin Menck, Faith Presbyterian Church, La Vista, NE In July 1998, one shy, nervous 8th grader got in a 15-passenger van full of "church people" she didn't really know and hit the road to Estes Park, Colorado for the LOGOS Conference. And thanks to the many people pouring into her and encouraging her to come out of her shell and to follow God's leading, that quiet 8th grader is now working at a church and writing this article.
