Portraits of youth

Young Lutherans respond to questions of faith

Dan Athison, 17
Lutheran Youth of North Seattle

How has someone influenced your faith life?

My friends really. My friend Luke Vazquez because he got me to start going again. I’m active in LYONS (Lutheran Youth of North Seattle), a joint ministry program of 10 Lutheran churches.

What gifts do you offer your church?

I do help out a lot. I volunteer Tuesday nights at a homeless shelter. And I’m good with cars. I fixed the youth van a couple of times.

What do you like best about your faith community?

Everyone at LYONS is friendly and everyone is close to one another. It’s really welcoming.
