I don't know what to do!!! 5 years 6 months ago #4574

ok, so we are having our pathfinder end of the year party is on saturday and it's a pool party... my mom doesn't feel that sda's should go to a pool party and a bbq on Sabbath and i agree with that. there is a potluck the same day so we are going to that. but next time i see my friends, they will ask why i wasn't there. i've had this problem before and they haven't always been the most understanding. :( what should i say when they ask? i know i have to stand up for my faith and God, but none of them will really understand...

You should tell them that you keep the Sabbath holy and you don't have parties on a Sabbath. Full stop, then they will accept it :)

HI,

I agree with you and your mom. While a potluck is an excellent way to have Christian fellowship on Sabbath, a party/bbq is secular and should be planned for another day.

As your peers have already mentioned, you need to tell your friends exactly that. True friends will accept your right not to participate and still be your friends.

Furthermore, I would suggest that you ask your pastor to talk with the Pathfinder director about the types of activities that he (or she) plans on Sabbath. Pathfinders is an SDA organization and should reflect the beliefs of the church in every way.

I'm going to assume that your pathfinder group is linked with your church. i agree with what everyone else said. first, pray about it.second, talk with your pastor or pathfinder leader about the problem. remeber, true christians honor the sabbath. so no matter what, don't go to the party. don't be afraid of what your friends say. if they are true friends then they will understand and will probably stand for what you are fighting for (for lack of a better word). :) good luck!

The tween years are the best time of your life. Please, everyone who is 9-13, enjoy your life to the fullest before you enter into the teen years which mark the beginning of the stress that will last the rest of your life.
... Even if it gets me convicted
I’ll still be on my knees with my hands lifted ...
... If saying I believe is out of line
If I’m judged cause I’m gonna give my life
To show the world the love that fills me
Then I want to be Guilty ...

So true! I think that those are the years when I couldn't have cared less about what anyone thought about what I said.

Yeah, like when I was with my fam, especially my older sis, the way that I acted was borderline controlled insanity (in a funny way). Even now I have to choose carefully what people I can act weird around.

I actually don't really know what I'm talking about right now. I'm kind on the edge of delirium (even though its only, like, 7pm :blink: )

I am from high school and even I know that these years are super easy. I haven’t been a Senior yet but all I know is it is easy to be a 16 year old in America.
