Required fields are marked * The Sovereign Grace Church of Pasadena presents its Parent-Teen Ministry, “Grounded for Life.” Its purpose is to help shape young adults so that they live passionately for Christ by applying the Gospel to their lives. The church seeks to train and equip parents in their role of disciplining their children and to train and equip the youth to respond to their parents with faith towards God.What is our Purpose for a Parent Teen ministry?The Bible places the primary responsibility of training children with the parents (Deut. 6:7, Eph. 6:4). The Bible also places the responsibility for equipping both parents and children with the Church (Eph. 4:11-13). These responsibilities are unchanging and are part of what it means to be a Christian. Grounded For Life is intended to give focused attention on these responsibilities.Who is Grounded for Life for?Any youth who have graduated from the sixth grade and have not yet graduated from High School along with their parents are invited to participate. Both parents will need to be committed to participate even though both parents would not be required at each meeting or event. A youth would not be able to participate without a parent or guardian.How does Grounded for Life work?The Parent Teen ministry will consist of two meetings per month. At the first meeting, the teens and their parents are to attend. There will be some teaching and afterward, everyone will break up into small groups for some application discussion. At the second meeting of the month, all the teens will meet with two or three parents to supervise. The teens will meet for about 30 minutes in small groups of three or four. They will have some accountability questions to ask each other and time to respond. They will use this time to encourage and pray for one another. The rest of the meeting is free time for games, snacks, music, etc.Sovereign Grace Church of Pasadena, 1530 E.

John Barnes: “I can’t get a managerial job in football because I’m black”

first_imgJohn Barnes claims he is struggling to get a job in management because he is black.The former Liverpool star’s last managerial job was at Tranmere in 2009. He lasted four months before being sacked. The 51-year-old has previously been in charge of Celtic and the Jamaica national team. Barnes insisted that had he been white he would have got another job.”A white manager loses his job and gets another job, he loses his job, he gets another job. Very few black managers can lose their job and get another job,” he told British channel ITV4.”What I can judge it from is by looking at society. How many black people are there in the higher echelons of any industry? We can talk about journalism, we can talk about politics. So why should football be any different?”Barnes’ first job in management, at Celtic for the 1999-2000 season, ended in the wake of an embarrassing Scottish Cup defeat to Inverness.But he denied that job was too much too soon. He said: “Well, if it comes now at 51, I don’t think it will be any different. It’s more to do with the perception of my ability to do the job, because there’s a certain perception of who can make a good manager.”Barnes’ former England team-mate Ian Wright agreed that the colour of his skin was counting against Barnes. The former Arsenal man said: “With someone of John Barnes’ ability and stature, to not have worked more in the game with something that he’s desperate to do. I don’t know what else it can be?”Barnes also talked about the guilt he felt after the Hillsborough disaster in 1989.Barnes, who attended the funerals and met the families of victims following the tragedy, said: “I felt this guilt that they were coming to watch me.”I know that they were coming to watch everybody else, and it’s Liverpool Football Club. It’s an irrational thought. “So I felt this guilt. And I wasn’t sure how they would react because had that been my loved one, I wouldn’t want to go and meet footballers or the football team, or ever watch football again.”–last_img read more
