Godbearing Life
In preparing some stuff today I went back the book "The Godbearing Life".
Wow it's a great book!
"Youth ministry is more about ministry than about youth...in practice this means that when our own life catches fire, the souls of youth and our congregations ignite as well" (p17)
Bring on the fire-starters!

This is up there for me with Yaconelli's contemplative youth ministry in terms of its significance. I love it and the challenge it embodies. It challenges the sometimes panicked programme activity mode that we go into sometimes in youthwork. When I look back at my own story it's not the awesome sessions we had or amazing talks that I remember, it's people and their commitment to me. Yet so often we stray from being those people to the youth we work with.
