For the first Sunday in Advent we are All In. For this All In Sunday service the topic picked by the youth was "Being Different and Bullying."
Jesus was bullied. We can see easily in the story of Jesus how he was very different. From the stories about his birth, up until his death, Jesus did things much differently than everyone around him. We know how this was received. So what does that mean for us? Well, it means a lot of things, but the one important point for today is this; even though there are bullies, and even though bullying will happen throughout your life, one thing you must remember no matter what, you are precious.
