Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.

A Youth Explosion

I have spent this weekend as the spiritual director for the Middle School retreat Fall Explosion with kids from around the Diocese of Georgia. We've sang, played, eaten and worshipped together this weekend at Honey Creek.

It's another reminder that we have great youth programs in our Diocese. King of Peace has always benefitted from the many youth events including New Beginnings and Happening - which are put on by teens for teens and others like Fall Explosion which are created by the teens and adults on the Youth Commission of the Diocese. King of Peace has been well represented on the youth commission by Meredith Maxwell and Jason White in earlier years and now by Kalyn Dial and Griffin Logue (who helped staff this weekend).

Great programs like this don't just happen. It required funding and the right staff, both of which require a commitment. Fortunately in our Bishop, Henry Louttit, and our diocesan youth coordinator, Gina Jenkins, we have two key people in place to keep our excellent program thriving. The same sort of commitment of people and funding are needed in the local congregation as well.

This afternoon from 4-6 p.m. Camden County Episcopal Youth will meet at King of Peace.

peace,
