Secrets Series Coming This Fall to HSM

 —  September 15, 2011 — 1 Comment

In a few days we kickoff the new school year with a new weekend teaching series called Secrets. This past weekend we asked students to anonymously share their secrets on a card we provided. No names, no rules, just secrets. And a promise that we would address the topic full on the next couple of weeks. Some incredible things were shared … some pretty serious themes started to emerge, thought I would share them here:

  • Many teens aren’t virgins, but everyone including their parents thinks they are
  • Porn, sex, masturbation easily ranks as the number one set of issues
  • Self-worth, image, identity and values are probably the second most popular secret/struggle
  • Our students look good on the outside, but have all sorts of secrets just under the surface

More on this as we get into the series for sure … we may have just discovered the plan for the whole teaching calendar in this stack of paper.
