The title of this posting is pronounced 'sniff', and stands for Sunday Night Youth Fellowship - the YF we have in the Cathedral parish. I've been involved with it since it began in July 1998, and am in the leadership team, along with Scott, Donna, Lorna and Dave (and Heather for this year!).

Last night we had a split programme for the first time, which was open to people to choose which room they attended. Downstairs, we had a session on teamwork/teambuilding, led by Donna, and upstairs we had a discussion on the End Times, thinking about whether there will be a Rapture, as described in the Left Behind series, which the Biblical evidence suggests won't happen; as well as what will happen when Christ returns.

There wasn't a talk as such, so I have no notes to copy and paste here, which left the session open to exploring some of the passages relating to the topic (1 Thessalonians 4:13-16, 1 Corinthians 15, Revelation 20), and dealing with issues or questions as they arose.

I think the session went quite well, with everyone getting involved and having a hard think around the topic! It is my hope that we will be able to have another such open session where people can raise questions and we can explore the Bible together, without fear of losing the younger members, who had a distinctly glazed look when we talked about the Rapture and such things in a bigger session with the whole group on the Second Coming.
