It is difficult to keep calling people to consider the deep-down reality that there is a purpose to the existence of each of us. We were not haphazardly made. God has chosen us to go out and do something to proclaim the gospel message that Jesus is alive and with us! Knowing this, which one of us would be truly afraid?
I participated in a great discussion about young adults and their capacity to know that they are being called by God. It is a different world than when I first began thinking about it. I started a new hashtag on Twitter last night, just to see who it would attract among the young adult population. I called it #yesiam. I wanted it to be a hashtag for those who understood that its meaning was "Yes, I am ready to discover and do what God has created me to do." It was a bit disconcerting to see the responses to this hashtag, totally misundertstood by so many who didn't "get" the movement I was trying to initiate and the people I was trying to gather.
So I share my frustration and ignorance with the social media on this blog. Perhaps one or two readers will have ideas to share with me?
