a favorite youth min top 10

once upon a time, i used to work on a middle school youth ministry event called ‘youth invasion’. the premise was a group of churches joined together with their middle school ministries and ‘invaded’ some low income neighborhoods and fixed up the exteriors of homes for residents who were unable to do so themselves. a big part of the week involved middle school kids and hundreds of gallons of paint.

and because it was a youth ministry event, there was the requisite event t-shirt. tonite, as i was sorting thru old t-shirts for a t-shirt quilt, i found the one from ’99. and it has one of my favorite top 10 lists ever for a youth ministry event:

10. don’t eat the paint

9.  paint freckles leave you with a really groovy tan

8.  clean sponsors are happy sponsors

7.  throwing buckets full ‘o’ paint at the house will not speed things up

6.  even michaelangelo used a drop cloth

5.  keep the karate kid jokes to a minimum (“paint da fence”)

4.  don’t use the time to practice auto paint and body on the church vans

3.  paint no dogs

2.  paint the correct house

1.  don’t eat the paint
