Youth Groups
Over the last few years I've used the quieter couple of weeks over the summer to write different papers for the LBA (click downloads
here). It's another way of getting training stuff out to the churches.
Currently getting ideas for what to do this year.
To get me thinking I went back to Kenda Creasy Dean's Practicing Passion.
And it's as good this time round as it was the first time.

"youth groups remain notoriously unreliable for the formation of faith. Faith, it turns out, is far more likely to take root in the context of families and congregations, and significant adult-youth relationships - communities where passion is practiced, where people are given towards loving one another sacrificially, and where we experience sacrificial love on our behalf"(p26)
