While I suppose I could have posted this topic in some other forum, I've chosen to do it in the Youth Forum because I feel that the subject is probably most relevant here. What I would ask my Baptist Board friends to do is to visit the website of the church of which I'm a member at http://www.lighthouseministries.org and then click on the link to the current topic of becoming authentic men and women. Once you've read the articles, I'd appreciate hearing your opinion(s) on them. I for one am very excited that my church is doing this, especially for our young men and women, and was thrilled to hear that they downloaded on to LBC's website the background articles written by some of our people (see below) on this subject. The articles are written by the following: Bro. Al -- Pastor Al Henson, LBC's senior pastor Virgil Tanner -- LBC's Student Ministries elder Richard Nelson -- LBC's Spiritual Life Development elder Cindy Phillips -- LBC's Children's Ministries director So, again, visit LBC's web site, read the articles, and then please post your comments on this thread. Hope you enjoy what you read, and I'll be looking forward to reading your comments about what you've read.
