Another Teen Car Crash
I just read this article in the SMH. This is the second crash in a couple of weeks, and one of many over the past few years. It's been quite a talking point in opinion columns and with politians in NSW over the past little while. My guess is it doesn't really concern teenagers in our youth groups, unless they are in a community directly effected by a death (I could be wrong on this, just my guess). However, I'm sure it is on the mind of parents in every youth group in NSW. I'm not really sure what to say about it all, or if there is anything that should be said. But, as leaders of you groups is there anything we can contribute to the discussion? How can we help look after parents as we also look after teenagers? I wonder how many of our youth group parents see our main purpose as creating a safe place for kids to be, as opposed to our main purpose being the growth of Christ's kingdom amoung teenagers?
