Did you catch those statistics as you were reading Chapter 7, “A Sticky Bridge Out of Home“, this week?
Here’s the high-level explanation:
“…the first two weeks are where key decisions (they) make key decisions about drinking and other high-risk behaviors, right along with choosing whether to go to church or to a campus ministry.” (p. 151)
“Don’t skip church that first week, because it just makes it easier to skip it the second week and then the eight week…..” (p. 151)
“…during the fall of freshman year, only 40 percent of youth group alum were attending an on-campus fellowship once a week or more, and 57 percent were attending church once a week or more.” (p. 152)
Great chapter, once again. Lots of related topics…..trusting God, granting new freedoms to our kids when they “leave the nest”, and even touching on helicopter or velcro parents! (Velcro was a new one for me!)
