What is your favorite story about your experiences working with youth?: We have a young woman with cerebral palsy in the youth group. On one retreat we did some team building activities including climbing walls. I figured she wouldn't be able to do it, so I kept her below with me. At this point several of the youth called her name and told her she could get up the wall. So some of the young men gathered around her and hoisted her up. Like I said, youth have much to teach us. We need to be open to learning from them.
