in a fit of over-zealous do-gooderism, i said yes to a request from my pastor. he asked me to mentor a young guy of 16 or so who he thought i could help. i don't know what i was thinking. i guess this kid has some issues that might be similar to mine in my youth. i don't know details yet cuz we haven't even talked more than to set up a meeting at a coffee shop. it is tomorrow and i am nervous. it could be really triggering for me - or it could be really healing - maybe both! and most of all i want to be supportive and encouraging and not let the young man down. so if you pray, please remember us - that it will go well and i'll be able to say the right things and have wisdom beyond my own limitations. no idea where this is gonna go...

thanks,
Lee
