Put Off Until Tomorrow

Now that most of you have had about a good month to get back into the daily routine of school and school work, I cannot help but wonder if there is something about school that you dislike as much as I did when I was in school. Although it has been just a few years […]

Stewardship

In this article, I would like to share with you the highlights of the discussion on stewardship, of which I took part. In introducing stewardship, Rev. Haak first brought to our attention the command of God in the eighth command­ment that we must not steal. Here we are commanded to use those things given us […]

Saved in the Way of Suffering

Suffering is an aspect of human life. Suffering is common to all men. Most people do not want to talk about this aspect of their life. They would rather ignore this harsh reality. It is therefore, strange that young people would desire to discuss this subject. Young people are foreigners to physical pain and suffering. […]

After viewing the majestic mountains, […]

Convention Impressions

The 43rd Protestant Reformed Young People’s Convention is now concluded and as I reflect on what has taken place, I would like to share a few impressions about the convention. The theme for the 1983 convention was “The Youthful Sojourner”, for which the main text was I Peter 3:14-17. The theme, I felt, could not […]

Choosing Friends

Rev. Engelsma addressed himself to the topic of choosing friends by examining with us the grounds or foundation of friendship. For a Christian, there is but one foundation on which all friendships must be built – the foundation of Jesus Christ. On this basis we must seek all our friends: those “special friends”, i.e. those […]

Serving God in the Family

The discussion on which I am writing this reflection is on the third, and final discussion we had at the Lynden Conven­tion. What was discussed was centered on the convention outline by Rev. Moore, namely; Youth Serving God in the Family. Rev. Kamps introduced this outline by making a few remarks dealing with the young […]
