Another huddle with The Huddle Men Ministry gathered the Millennials and Generation X together and joined forces to examine the real reasons why the youth is so disconnected from the church on Monday night. Young adults poured out their hearts filled with frustrations brought on by the lack of attention from the outdated organization of our churches. Lost in the biblical terms facing the rules that have been forcing our youth to wear a mask in order to get closer to God. They asked, “Meet us where we are, break down the thees’ and the thous’ to help us understand. The unfolding of your words gives light, it gives understanding to the truth. Psalms 119:130. “Why are schools and churches the only two things that have not changed” they asked. Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? Galatians 4:16
Our youth want to be heard. When you take away someone’s voice, you take away their power. The church is not a building but a body of believers united in Christ. The Huddle Men Ministry recognized an issue and confronted it head on. Any ministry that brings fourth understanding and healing through healthy conversation led by Christ is sure to bring the young and old closer to God.
