One of my favorite thing about having a group of older students is that I can say, "Hey, you wanna come back to my place and play games" and they all can drive and come. Tonight was one of those nights. I finally got a chance to play a full game of Settlers of Catan. I have to say that I am hooked.
Of course the best part of the evening is just getting to sit around and hang out with them. The hardest thing about being a youth pastor is just when everyone gets cool enough to hang out they have to grow up and leave. At least I have a few juniors who love to come by.
