If ever there was a time when we needed the witness of Christian love that drives out fear, it is now!

James Quincey, CEO of Coca-Cola Co., said: "If we're not making mistakes, we're not trying hard enough." Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix, told a technology conference that his company has too many hit shows. "We have to take more risk . . . to try more crazy things . . . we should have a higher cancel rate overall."
There are a lot of youth ministries out there that are not making the eternal impact they could be. Some of the reasons many aren't thriving include avoiding the hard questions and not challenging teens hard enough.

It is with a heavy heart that I feel compelled to communicate with you concerning the controversy that has engulfed your candidacy for the United States Senate from Alabama.
I think what we are seeing in some ways is this: Playboy ethics, but Puritan consequences.
Unfortunately, I've seen it again and again. Church leaders and members sacrifice the health and good of the church for fear of hurting one or a few persons. The body is sacrificed for the sake of a few members. We think we are being nice, but we are hurting the church.
You're in the spotlight and you've just been asked about a controversial issue. What do you do?

What would you do to enhance your baby's mental and emotional well-being? A New York psychoanalyst noticed a disturbing trend: A huge increase in the number of kids being diagnosed at an earlier age with mental disorders and emotional problems.
We play a lot of defense in youth ministry. We fight against tough opponents like teen suicide, marijuana and opioid addiction, cyber-bullying, sexting and on and on and on the list goes. Teenagers today are up against a long list of enemies and we want to help them win.
