This past weekend I had the opportunity to help my youth group put together a regional gathering so all the kids could get to know each other, pray together and just have a blast. It was so great to see people drive all the way from Dallas, San Antonio and Rio Grande Valley just so they could spend one day together.
Now the theme of this mini-conference was "Rooted". Essentially, the message was about rooting yourself in the right environment and avoiding ones where nutrients are scarce for your spiritual well-being. Surrounding yourself with people who constantly keep you from doing the right thing is obviously not a thriving environment so identify your current surroundings and make a decision to place yourself in one where you can prosper.
