Try to picture this: teenagers in a seminar for two hours, sitting on concrete the whole time, taking notes, and asking for more when it's over. Fantasyland, you say? No. Haiti. When I was doing youth outreach in Haiti, I was asked to do an early morning seminar for Christian young people in a gym where they were seated on concrete bleachers. I was told to teach for two hours. I did, and I was the first one done. So these kids gathered up their notes and rushed to catch the end of another seminar that hadn't finished yet. Sounds just like American young people you know? Right? Well, you know, when I got back to speaking to young people in America, I knew I had better be done in about twenty minutes or less or I'd be talking to myself. But before we're too rough on North American teenagers, let's realize that they have a disease that afflicts much of the North American Church - a disease that produces spiritual midgets.
