Last week I was in Oklahoma and had the joy of connecting with members of the youTheology community - alumni, past and present mentors and pastors of partner congregations. This was a joy. I was at First UMC in Enid that Sunday and was able to worship with them and chat a little at the end of service. Something unique happened during my Oklahoma stay. I was able to sit in on a mentor-youTheologian time. This was a first.
Rev Thomas and Brandy reflected on their mentor-mentee relationship and time together. One thing that came out was the "ah-ha moments that happen during that time. The type of learning that happens in a one-on-one setting is different and special. It was also a ah-ha moment for me. Hear them talk about their time together below and think about how you engage your students so that they have those ah-ha moments:
I am very grateful for the opportunity and blessing of connecting with everyone. I give God thanks for you all.
