Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. - 1 Timothy 4:12
This past weekend, we were reminded of this verse from Paul’s first letter to Timothy as 12 of our youth set an example for us through their speech and conduct by leading an Asbury First delegation to March For Our Lives-DC Official. We are so thankful to them for their faithful leadership and powerful witness. We also have to give a huge shout-out to our new friends at National United Methodist Church for putting their commitment to radical hospitality on display by opening their doors to us and other churches from around the country and offering us a really powerful program and a place to spend the night. To read more about this and other United Methodist responses to the march throughout DC, check out this write up that’s featured on the Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference website (which includes a statement from and picture of our very own Hannah Beamish!).
