Sunday morning 2 – Ali Etheridge

Psalm 42 – crying out for depth

Relationships are shallow.
For all the social media and methods of communication, 53% of young people would say they are lonely.
We need to be deep youth workers, making deep relationships with our young people.
Young people see God as a therapist and a butler: there at their beck and call to help them and there to listen to their problems, but nothing more.

Chasing for width rather than depth, rather than depth over width, leads to poor soil that won’t grow anything.
Depth comes from finding our identity in God’s love.
v11 – When we put our hope in God we go deep with Him.

Our call is to raise up a generation of deep young people.
When deep calls to deep we keep going, because He keeps going.
