How much should we connect to understand them?
As people who want to reach out and help the youth and understand them. How much understanding do we want to learn? Is there a limit? Counselors and youth pastors read books that tells us that we need to understand their continuing changing culture. But because it is changing how involved should we get in becoming one with them and will we lose focus of what we wanted to do in the beginning. The pop-culture that they follow may not be correct morally but do we go down to their level to understand their situations and be able to sympathizes with them or should we stick to our morals and try feel what they feel from a different position they are in. In youth one day your tactic in connecting with them would work but next day it may fail and a new plan will be needed to gain the connection that was there before.

There is no doubt that the historical Jesus, the man who was executed by the Roman State in the first century CE, was a brown-skinned, Middle Eastern Jew.
I grew up in a Christian home, where a photo of Jesus hung on my bedroom wall. I still have it. It is schmaltzy and rather tacky in that 1970s kind of way, but as a little girl I loved it. In this picture, Jesus looks kind and gentle, he gazes down at me lovingly. He is also light-haired, blue-eyed, and very white.
