Do you ever wonder what young people are thinking, or how to communicate with them? Pete Wilson has devoted much of his life to those questions. That is why this father of 7 (soon to be 8!) stepped into the role of Youth Pastor at Founded in Truth Fellowship in Rock Hill, South Carolina. We learn Pete’s story in part one of our three-part visit with him. If you have teenagers in your life, you will appreciate Pete’s insights!
Our musical guest is Rut Banks, bringing to us two special songs about her walk with Yeshua. Rut’s music introduces our Elders Barry Phllips and David Jones as they take up the topic of the Generation Gap in this week’s midrash.

Isaiah 52:13-53:12; Matthew 25:14-30; Hebrews 12:4-11
