I recently had the honor of helping chaperon a youth group retreat for my church. One of the last activities was a worship service where the youth went through several stations. One of the most powerful stations was a crude cross made from two logs found in the woods and held together with duct tape. Each youth was to write down something in life that they are struggling with and would like to give up to God on a piece of paper. Then they were to nail that piece of paper to the cross.

It was a pretty amazing weekend. Makes me look forward to this Summer’s mission trip even more.
