You Are Not Alone

(image taken from Indexed)

I thought the above picture was interesting. In children’s ministry we can get lonely and isolated really fast. I’m sure that’s true with life in general. The thing is, though, that we forget there is a large crowd of people who do care that we don’t know and sometimes are unaware about.

That’s where social networks come in handy! Blogs, Twitter, Facebook, etc. are great places to find new people who are in the same boat as you are and who care. If you are feeling lonely and isolated, I encourage you to check out some children’s ministry blogs. There are a few of them in my links section you can check out. I also encourage you to get a Twitter account and follow the #kidmin hashtag if you don’t already. (If what I just wrote sounds like jibberish, check out my quick post about Twitter here.)

There are some new social tools like Google Wave that are showing up where you can even collaborate with likeminded people and receive encouragement and not feel so lonely.

You are not alone! Sometimes it takes work, though, to discover that.
