Have you watched “13 Reasons Why” on Netflix or read the book? Teenagers are watching. “13 Reasons” highlights the very real impact of teen suicide. It hits hard on the importance of being present for and with each other. And while Jesus isn’t directly referenced, we’d be remiss as the church if we ignored the fact that teen suicide is on the rise. Praise God that in the darkness of such truth, we cling to the ultimate truth that God, through Jesus Christ on the cross and rising again, will always claim us and call us God’s own.
