Christian Youth Celebrate Faith

You hear so much in the news today about our youth getting into trouble. Most of our youth are well-adjusted, nice, innocent people. The ones that commit the hideous crimes are a bad reflection on all of them. So, this article about the Christian youth certainly puts a renewed faith in the youth of today.

More than 2,000 students and their chaperones met in Saratoga Springs City Center for the 20th annual Youth for Christ Leadership Conference. One of the speakers was the father of Rachel Scott, one of the students slain in the Columbine School massacre. Darrell Scott has been touring the country, giving speeches about his daughter's vision for helping others and how to live spiritually.

Students were happy to be at the conference with other like-minded youth. They felt freedom in expressing their spiritual views without being looked at funny. They enjoyed hanging out with friends and making new friends.
