If you are anywhere near Logos Bookstore in Alexandria, KY or Lighthouse Christian Bookstore in Long Beach, CA please drop in and check out what they are up to. There are also a few bloggers who have been talking about Youth Worker Appreciation Day: (See more out there? Leave a comment with a link)
