Continue encouraging each other and building each other up, just like you are doing already. - 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (CEB)
As a youth pastor, I frequently interact with young Christians struggling with everything from depression to failed relationships. Many come to me seeking help, prayers, advice, and comfort.
In listening to their problems, I have come to realize the gift of reassurance. These young students do not want to hear...
When I listen to others’ worries, I can offer the gift of hope.
Respond by posting a prayer.
The RESILIENCE conference in 2021 was so uplifting and nourishing. It was wonderful to be with other Christians around the world at this retreat, who truly care about responding to trauma in a compassionate way by teaching spiritual practices to help with grounding and healing.”
Join us for the next RESILIENCE conference on September 29-30, 2023. Learn more at UpperRoom.org/resilience.
