Mary’s…and God, of course

Today I had brunch with two girls from school at my new favorite restaurant. It’s a little diner near the school called Mary’s of Course. It’s so good! I had a tofu burrito – that alone should let you know how much I fell in love with it this morning. It’s funky with lots of cute things and art on the wall for sale. We got there right before the line got long. It’s a hot spot. These girls go here quite a bit and know the people who work there – so I think I’m going to start going with them every weekend. And maybe try to work there this summer…?? Could be fun…

I love these girls. They’re part of a group of girls that I just love to hang out with because they’re fun and real. They like to talk about deep stuff and they think about deep stuff. The thing I like is that they’re willing to talk about God and spirituality, even though they’re either athiest or agnostic or whatever. We talked about it some this morning and I hope we have many more conversations like this to come. We’re just talking about things that matter. Isn’t that what life is all about?

“Dear Lord, give us the teenagers that we may lead them to Thee. Our hearts ache for the millions of young people who remain untouched by the Gospel and for the tragically large proportion of those who have dropped by the wayside and find themselves without spiritual guidance. Help us to give them a chance, Oh Father, a chance to become aware of thy Son’s beauty and healing power in the might of the Holy Spirit. Oh, Lord Jesus, give us the teenagers, each one at least long enough for a meaningful confrontation with Thee. We are at best unprofitable servants, but thy grace is sufficient. Oh, thou Holy Spirit, give us the teenagers. For we love them and know them to be awfully lonely. Dear Lord, give us the teenagers.”    (Jim Rayburn, founder of Young Life)
