Take a deep breath.

Over the next few days, you’ll feel a rumbling. It’s the sound of everyone gearing up for life after Labour Day, when the summer unofficially ends and we are back in our “normal” routines.

It’s also the start of a new youth ministry year, with new students, some familiar faces, and everyone having grown older by a year since the last September.

But before that comes, with your head racing to the kick-off in a couple of weeks, take a deep breath, and enjoy the calm before the storm.
