I don't quite understand it, even though I went through the age myself. Okay, getting wet I can understand in certain ways, but I don't get the whipped cream thing.
Or maybe they don't really like it, they just follow what the youth leaders encourage them to do?
I've joined the Jr. High ministry at our church and I'm wrestling with the sorts of goofy silly games we play. Some seem perfectly harmless, but others (such as putting whipped cream on other people's faces - the losers faces) seem a little more problematic.
I'm curious to know... is this just me? What sort of games does/did your youth group do? What is okay and what is stupid, humiliating or dangerous?
And would Jesus ever whip-cream a losers face? Even in a fun game?
I'm really not sure.
