A pastor has been called to a certain congregation with one major mandate in mind: “Revitalize our youth ministry! We built this new addition to our church building, with a huge mortgage and we cannot get any younger people to come to our church activities.” So, the Pastor mobilizes the younger families in both the church and in the local area for monthly Sunday night activities. However, the very faces that were on the pastoral call committee often have alternative family plans on Sunday nights.

I am not strong enough to dig, and I am ashamed to beg. 4I have decided what to
