Serious - Jesus Army Life, Day 104

Last night was interesting. The teenage scene was calmer and we had more adults around. I doubt that we've come to the end of the teenage season, but it did seem to mark a shift away from juvenile flipancy towards a greater seriousness about what it means to be a church together.

We've had a young lad staying with us this week. As one of the first teenagers to come round, he wanted a week of training as a disciple. He's changed a lot since his first evening here six months ago, he's a real Christian brother now, not just another insecure kid. I think this also bears prophetic marks of the same seriousness about Jesus which is moving among the younger members among us.
