My Name is Chris Vardy, I am a Sophomore at Texas Tech University (Wreck Em’) majoring in Agriculture Communications. Now I know what you’re thinking, I do not know how to talk to cows. That’s next semester. I am very excited to introduce myself to y’all as the new intern for the Youth Ministries.
Sometimes the work we did so happily before — creating content, leading groups, writing lessons, and then offering it in person to watch people engage with it — now feels like effort tossed out onto the ocean of the internet with little way to know if any of it made any difference. And then came this.
This school year was a whirlwind of very inconvenient incidences that made me stray from the productivity I find so much comfort in and made my naturally busy-bodied soul feel frustrated, angry, and disappointed. So to all of my fellow busy-bodies out there: Be still. It might be the most productive thing you do all day.
