It is deer hunting season, and social media is flourishing with pictures and stories of trophies taken and days spent in the field.

MIKE MCALVEY: Summer job

These summer days are fascinating ones for me as a youth pastor. After many years of ministry with teens, I find myself walking in their shoes. I get a little depressed thinking about school starting in the fall. During the school year, I root for snow days. I do that happy dance when school is out for the summer, and I find myself intrigued watching young people do the tough balancing act of adding to their lives a summer job (or a year-round job for that matter). Invariably, I get called several times in the early spring to be a reference for a teen seeking a summer job. I find it to be a great opportunity with enough challenges that make it a worthwhile venture for every teen.
