...about skyrocketing STD infection rates, asks Gabrielle. Darned good question. Where to start?
Well, start by taking part in leading young people (and others of course) to Christ, and help to disciple them in the church. Encourage their parents in the marriages God has given them, and help to provide a safe place for them to be when their parents need to be elsewhere.
More? Well, what about helping those who wish to homeschool, or to take in foster children? Can you think of a more vulnerable group to this kind of thing? I can't.
Done all that? Wonderful--I envy your achievement! What about taking a look at your local schools? Read the paper; do they need chaperones at school events? Maybe an "untrained" ear like yours might be able to figure out that somebody seriously needs to edit the playlist at the sock hop, or that the "dance" team is going to be qualified for something a bit less dignified than the Bolshoi, or that local football fans need a bit of training in etiquette?
Little things like this can turn down the temperature. Give it a try.
