We have discovered that self mutilation (cutting) is common amongst our middle school and high school students who are hurting.
Trey Grant, our middle school pastor did a outstanding job seeing the need and bringing faith centered awareness and equipping to our people.
One of our parents was particularly touched by her own struggle with parenting and posted an outstanding blog this morning.
If you're a parent I encourage you to read it.
If you're a youth worker I encourage you to pass it on to your parents.
May we be people (parents, youthworkers, grandparents, leaders) who see the next generation as Jesus does, with great compassion.
