Most of you probably remember the WWJD bracelets that so many people were wearing 15 years ago. WWJD stands for “What Would Jesus Do?” It serves a reminder to apply how Christ lived to whatever situation we are facing. What if instead of asking what Jesus would do – we asked WIJD? “What is Jesus Doing?”

What sacrifices have others made to make youth ministry possible? In these sacrifices, What is Jesus doing?
What are you being called to do? In this call, What is Jesus doing?

In your prayers what are you hearing? In the answers, what is Jesus doing?
