A friend of mine and I attended a Church of God youth group event. The kids were learning the art of debate, reciting verses and singing a few contemporary praise and worship songs. We thought it would be a good way to see how other youth groups do things and get some ideas.
Later my friend seemed unsettled that maybe we shouldn’t have participated in this. I felt like nothing was wrong with this. We stood with them and sang songs and clapped. We watched and listened to their debate and verse recitation. It was not a worship service in leui of Sunday Mass.
Our own kids, who were just spectators actually used some of their apologetics with the Church of God kids!
What do you guys think?
