GUEST POST: Appearance VS Reality


Things to think about after you watch this:

  • Not every student you see as “uninterested” is having a terrible time.
  • Not every student you see as “happy go lucky” is having a good time.
  • The words you use cane either be used to build up or tear down.
  • Students often hide their true feelings under a facade of “just doing OK”
  • Dogs are awesome.

What are your thoughts or feelings towards this? What implications does this have for student ministry?

Ronald Long is a youth pastor with lots of great resources on DYM.
