In 1975 I moved to Wellington. At the La Vie Nouvelle coffee shop opposite the Town Hall was by the Scripture Union Bookshop. All around the top of the wall, with the letters running into each other continuously as above, were the words as in the poster above "Don't let the excitement of your youth cause you to forget your creator" (based on Ecclesiasties 12 v1 "Remember your creator in the days of your youth.")
Those words made a permanent impression on this young man!
One of the things that really thrilled me yesterday was our new Youth Coordinator, Rose Newton, preaching the same sort of message in our morning services. She was speaking from a different part of the Bible, in a different context. But here was a young adult, unconsciously demonstrating that she has not forgotten her creator, saviour, and life power in all the excitement of life. Equally I was delighted with even our oldest parishioners and those in between, encouraging her on what was a really good sermon (!) They were also very encouraging about her 24-7 work with youth at Marlborough Girls High as well as in the church. I think that in so doing, they were also unconsciously demonstrating that they had not forgotten their creator in their older years.
(You can listen to Rose's sermon by going to the Sermons tab on our website.)
Age is an attitude it's said. It's always time to get that God attitude - now!
