Changing Seasons

As I write this post, I can see our neighbor outside raking up leaves. Fall is certainly a favorite season for me, at least in the beginning. But once all of the colors change to brown and the freshness of the cool air just starts to feel cold, my love for the season starts to change. The familiarity of fall begins to take the edge off of my excitement of its arrival. I see that same case in other areas of my life. The giddiness of anticipation for something large or small soon is replaced with the mundane. Unfortunately, I have seen this at work in my relationship with Christ. I have such a desire, such a longing for time with him. But soon my times become part of the ordinary, easily pushed aside for another day.
What can ignite excitement once again? What can illicit that anticipation, at the same time pushing off the familiarity? Isn't it perspective? Isn't it a cherishing of the mundane, seeing it as worthy as well? The beauty of fall still remains, only my view of it has changed.

First of all, thank you.
Thank you for investing in youth through youth-ministers, by blogging about your experiences on Kupferer 4*.

Please know how incredible this is. And be encouraged to keep going.

I hope and pray that even more youth-pastors will be inspired, find solutions to their struggles, will be encouraged not to stop serving, and be inspired to grow their gifts.

We recognize that these are incredible times to live in, where technology allows youth-pastors around the world to encourage each other. As for ourselves, we use technology to reach out to youth globally as well.

For the past five years, we’ve been developing the world’s first videogame that takes kids through the Bible from beginning to end. Our hope is to increase the love for God’s Word amongst kids.

We dream to see kids go through the Bible together, having fun as they become part of David’s army, spend time in the fish as Jonah, and play level after level, leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection.

In order to steward this immense project well, we’re building relationships with youths pastors like you. We like to ask your input by allowing you to look behind the scenes, have your kids/families play demo game levels before they go public, etc. You may also recommend a few people you think would be of interest.

Additionally, we can provide you with plenty of interesting “blog-food” (concept art, images, etc) if you feel that this could benefit your subscribers.

If you’d like more information, shoot me a quick reply to the email address below.
