Bus Ministry Woes

I am not convinced of the benefits of our bus ministry here at Temple. If it bears evil fruit, should it be hewn down and cast into the fire?

Case in point. We picked up a young man for the 1st time the other night on our way to the youth rally. I spoke to him. He seemed personable and from a good home. That night someone carved his name into a pew. I spoke to him and his parents, but I can't be sure if anything will be done about it.

These things only seem to come from pickups, not children of the membership. Sigh... how can I prevent this kind of behavior?

I don't think you can prevent this kind of behavior, These children are not taught what is right or wrong. They are starved for attention. But the love and kindness they are shown while at church is often misinterpreted as weakness and when corrected they don't take it seriously.
