“I can’t wait to bring Jesus to people in need.”
I love students’ desire to serve and care for others. Yet this kind of posture raises all kinds of questions for me as someone facilitating a team of outsiders in my city. Questions like:
How can we help students discover ways to serve without doing harm? How can we help students discover how Jesus is already present in the city?
I encourage students to enter their week of service with the hope to share their lives and receive others in mutuality instead of trying to fix what they may think is broken.
