How about this for a plan?
* gather a group of young people together
* take them to the home of an older person living in the local community
* give them paint and paintbrushes
* ask them to paint the garden shed
* offer them a BBQ afterwards.
That's what happened when we took the Ebe youth group out the other day for the first of our 'Youth and Social Action' sessions. Already, our young people are seeing that in serving others, we are in fact serving God. And that's it, isn't it? Following God is something you do, not just talk about!
Already looking forward to the next occasion!
