While this opera duo have impressive voices…what impressed me the most the model we see here of peer mentoring. Charlotte saw through the shyness and outward appearance, and without her, Jonathan may not have stepped foot on stage, and he would not have reached his potential. We forget sometimes in ministry that we need to help mentor our peers and our students need to do the same.
Student leaders need to find peers they can support, encourage, and take to new levels. Similarly, youth leaders/pastors need to find someone in their same boat that they can help bait their hook and reel in the big one, so to speak. Find some time to help another in the trenches, in ministry, and follow the model of “iron sharpens iron”.
