Children's Ministry, Failure, and Why Sometimes It's Okay to Bail - NEXT Church
“Now, remember, Steven, if you run into any trouble out there, you can always bail. There's never any shame in bailing.”-Greg Universe The quote above comes from Steven Universe, a children’s cartoon that often promotes messages about healthy emotions and decision making to children and adults alike. It comes from Greg Universe, father of the title character, right before his son attempts something that is both very exciting and unlikely to work. Although his words are few, his message is profound: sometimes, even when we don’t feel like we should, it’s okay to stop. It can be better to abandon the plan than to try and force yourself into something that you know just isn’t going to be worth it.
