EJournal today - 2 minutes on grace

Kara Powell | Dec 7, 2010

One of my favorite parts of my job as the Executive Director of FYI is the amazing leaders and parents I get to meet. When we had a Sticky Faith Summit, we asked some super sharp youth leaders what they would want teenagers and college students to know about grace.

Why is grace so important? In our College Transition Project, we are seeing that kids have a truncated view of the gospel that is more about behaviors than God’s love and grace. As a result, when they fail (not if, but when) they feel so guilty that they run away from God and the church instead of toward them.

So today’s E-Journal has a 2 minute video with 3 amazing leaders talking about grace. We hope you forward this video to your kids and your youth group alum, or maybe even show it in your youth ministry or at any gatherings you might have for youth group alum.

Grace. It is amazing.
