My friend Jason’s started up a new site called Jabberbox, and I wrote a post for it entitled “A Good Kind of Uncomfortable,” about my experience with urban Young Life kids. Here’s an excerpt:
That night last week, God broke my heart for those kids: for Delonta, Antoine, Jamal, Will, ‘Twaan, and D. Because now they have faces; they have names. They’re not just “the kids at the local high school” who need help or charity or mentoring. They’re boys with names and futures; they’re kids whom God loves with every fiber of his being.
And he’s called me to do the same.
