The St. James Youth Group activities always include an opportunity for service hours. Examples of service opportunities include Trunk or Treat at the Ronald McDonald House and the Souper Bowl of Caring for Harvesters. This year, due to the pandemic we had to rethink and adjust our service opportunities to do safe, socially distant service. As a result, the teens are videotaping themselves reading Dear God stories.   Marialuna’s passage tells us all the things that she tells the Lord and she knows and believes the Lord is listening to her and will answer her. What a neat relationship to have with your Lord.  Marialuna closes with a quote from Psalm 4: 1-3  “Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer.”
