by the Haymarket Church Youth Group
Every year at Youth Group we pause during Advent to reflect. We put aside some of the general youth group shenanigans spend an evening together reflecting on this season of waiting. Students move through a series of stations that encourage them to pause and wonder about life, faith, Christmas, and God’s plan.
This year one of our stations was the “Graffiti Wall” where students stopped and wrote answers to 3 different questions. We’ve included their answers below and encourage you to take some time and ponder these questions for yourself today.
