    Anna, thank you for your leadership in this important work, and for expressing the heart of the youth in such a compelling manner in this article. As you note, the attitude that this query probes and challenges lies at the heart of all our decision-making and dialogue as Christian men and women. So you are right to draw an important connection between this query and our discussion of controversial matters. As Paul counseled the Philippians, “if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.” I appreciate very much your description of the way the Spirit worked among you in your discernment labors. Please keep practicing this close attentiveness to His voice as you seek it together.

    This Friend (Tom Stave) speaks my mind! Anna is a gem. She shows that youth are not the future of the church, but rather they ARE the church today!
