“on a roll”

A few weeks ago, there was a group of about five kids who were “on a roll” being very disrespectful. They were not listening to anything our volunteer’s or I had to say. It escalated to the point I finally had to ask them to leave. I don’t like to send kids away! They did came back toward the end of the night and asked to speak with me. I could tell they were willing to listen, and they accepted what I had to say, Before I even brought up apologizing, they offered to apologize. I used this incident as an opportunity to tell them I wanted them at 71Five Campus even though they had messed up, which they were quite surprised to hear. 
So many kids today assume that if they mess up, they will be rejected and given up on. I am so blessed to give the youth in Eagle Point an example of God’s love and how He, through Jesus, excepts us and forgives us even though we don’t deserve it.
