In Matthew 11:28, Jesus says “Come to me, all who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest”. Here’s another way to look at it. Jesus is saying “If you’re tired and run-down, or, if you feel like you’re the only one who’s going through this, come to me with all of these things that weigh you down. I will carry them for you and refresh your soul.
Isn’t that what our young people need? To know that they are not alone? In a society where the media and messages they receive don’t necessarily mimic God’s intentions, we offer them a venue in which they can know they are not alone, that there are people who truly care for their needs, and hear the good news of the Gospel.
