We were visiting a UMC church with my family on vacation, and it so happened that it was "Youth Sunday." For those not familiar, this is somewhat common in generic evangelical circles. The youth will lead the music, do skits or something, and then the youth pastor preaches. Sometimes, a young man will give a mini-sermon. After suffering the burden well until it was time for the sermon, we were only a little surprised (but much outraged) to watch a 14 year old girl ascend to the pulpit to give the sermon. I was willing to suffer a great deal in the name of family cohesion, but at that point I'm fairly certain I would have walked out even if there was combination fire-flood-tornado going on right outside the door. Back at the house afterward, a conversation ensued that was quite...eventful.
