Passion
Found myself dipping back into Kenda Creasy Dean's fantastic book"Practicing Passion" yesterday.
Full of good stuff, why youth ministry needs to be shaped by the "passion of Christ" (and I don't mean Gibson's movie!). Why "nice" youth ministry isn't enough.
Here's a quote that hit me again:
"A passionless church will never address passionate youth. It is highly questionable whether a passionless church addresses anybody, or if it is even a church in the first place...Passion both human and divine, challenges the language of modern rationalism and ushers in a way of life that subverts the basic assumptions of an anesthetic culture with therapeutic goals" (p69)
