"Man, Rick, there's no fire pits left!"

That was me, on the verge of giving up as I set out as scout for the youth group. It was nearing 7:30pm on a Friday night @ the beach in California. Labor Day weekend. And we were expecting to find an empty fire pit waiting for us.

Ah, such is the pain of missed details.

You'd never guess what Rick says to me, though. This was the guy whom I thought just came to youth for the extended curfew, games, music,...

I found myself saying this as a fellow youth leader and I discussed several issues with the group of teenagers we meet with every friday. She was frustrated, and I was a little bit discouraged.

She was talking about a 15 year old boy who just recently joined the youth group. He was the type of bad boy all the girls in the youth found interesting, mysterious, and all that. But it didn't take long to find out that Rick only came to youth group to get out of the house. He was bored,...
