Youth Trip Nightmare

I read this article on the UMC website and it sent chills down my spine. Not only would it be tragic to find one of my youth dead on a trip but then to have the conflict of suicide vs wrongful death is even worth.

I have no connection to this at all except I am in youth ministry. I could not imagine going through something like this at my church. To loss a youth would be hard enough but then a scandalous fallout would be even worse. I as a youth worker would hate to know that something like this happened under my watch, to youth that I knew, loved and ministered to.

My prayers go out to the Church of the Messiah and to the family of James McCoy. May they know the peace and the love of Christ.
