Assembly - Who do we live for?

I'm sitting in the first assembly of the year. Patrick Butler, the Diocesan youth worker is leading. His theme is,
"Who do we live for?". Often we live for our friends - to keep in with the crowd, or our parents - to keep them happy. But God wants us to please Him. Tim Curtis a gifted linguist and SAMS colleague - who has devoted his life translating the Bible into Exclet - a Paraguayan Indian language, spoken only by 3000 people, of whom few are literate. Why does he do it? To please God.
