I sometimes wonder why i work with young people, and then i hear about a guy like this Zach Hunter and I remember....
He's a 15 year old abolitionist - that is someone who wants to stamp out slavery not flush the toilet (that would be an ablutionist). He has inspired me, not because he is fast becoming famous, or because he is so outspoken, but because he is not prepared to take no for an answer, he will not be told it cannot be done.
I get fed up with all the talk about taking this country for God, when it means nothing and encourages nothing, but I believe in every young person is that ability to make a difference, not because of talents but because they have not (hopefully) been soured by failure.
In a few weeks we begin a 6 month part time youth development course aimed at high school age youth, my hope is that we can inspire them, and grow them into fully committed followers of Jesus.
