I had a conversation alongside Neil with someone from out of town who had visited Northwest for the first time a little over a month ago, and had recently started attending church again. We got to find out from them more about why they had been out of church, their faith background, and why they recently started attending church again. We also got to learn this person’s current views about Jesus and how that translates into mental health, relating to others, and making sense out of life. Neil was able to encourage them to dig into the stories of Jesus from the gospels, and I was able to encourage them that pieces of their story seemed to point to God pursuing them and not leaving them where they were mentally and spiritually. It was a really encouraging, enlightening conversation with a younger person who is coming back to their faith and exploring more about who Jesus is to them.
