There is really no easy way to describe the funeral I attended last month of a local young man. It was a beautiful remembrance, a deeply sad occasion and something that should never have had to happen. As I listened to the recollections of the positive and lasting impact that Christians had had in his troubled life, I was greatly affected by the very real truth that young people need to know Jesus.

After this, I was inspired to speak on the power of faith as small as a mustard seed in my next few assemblies – sharing my own personal testimony of overcoming ‘mountains’ in my life. Shortly after one of these assemblies, I was approached by a parent thanking me. Her young son was a borderline school-refuser until he heard this message and has now overcome his fear of school!

Our verse for this term is ‘Taste and see that the Lord is good’, and children are so very keen to taste and see! Research being published over the summer will show that (unbeknown to most parents) children regularly pray and seek comfort and confidence in God. Children are actively seeking the Lord – more than any of us realise!

Part of the mission of Spinnaker is to reveal where God is at work in their lives. The aim is simple, but very real, very relevant, and very urgent: because it is a life-saving work for each child - here and now, and long into their adulthood.
