This Sunday sees my last youth meeting for a while. It has been a tough decision but one that will hopefully benefit the young people, the church and, of course, me! My daily work for which I am salaried will remain unaffected, so there will be a small element of engagement with the youth work world, but face to face meetings will be rare.
How long? I am not sure – definitely a term (I am working with a team of youngsters in summer) maybe longer. My heart is already torn but it is the correct call. Sometimes the tough calls are important, this is one of those times.
