On Sunday, November 27, I had the privilege of attending the St. Luke (Garden Grove) Teen SOYO Fireside Chat. It was a terrific time.
The group has started these chats as a monthly event, and they draw anywhere from 20-40 people every time. Though this is only the third time they have done this, topics of conversation have spread across a wide range: confession, saints, occult practices, drug use, dinosaurs, aliens, and many others.
Fr. Michael Tassos, the parish’s pastor, gently leads his young people through conversations that they might be concerned to have. He handles their questions with grace and love, all the while, managing to have what appears to be some fun.
This week’s beginning topic of conversation was “Thanksgiving,” though it certainly reached into some other topics, and the teens seemed to love it.
