Violent Youth Ministry?
Great post on "Violence and Youth Ministry" over at Rethinking Youth Ministry.
Glad I'm not the only one who questions the appropriateness of paintballing etc. in Christian youth work.

Back on the Small Screen
Just spotted Phil "Sinner or Winner" back on the small screen.

He was interviewed on what's turning out to be quite an interesting BBC2 show "Am I normal?" looking at faith and psychological issues.

Laptop Problems
Blogging from Mrs Lev's machine as my laptop has decided to play up.
Some kind of power problem or loose connection - keeps turning off, and sometimes not starting.Usually cuts out just when I'm about to send that crucial e-mail etc. It's not an overheating thing, and I don't think a memory problem, so not sure what's up. Annoying!

Back in action after a week and a half of holiday. Had great week in York (staying in a converted Methodist chapel), chilling out and doing touristy stuff. Caught up with friends in Birmingham on the way back which was good too.

Came back to a bloglines reader full of stuff. One that caught my eye was Fernando's Is it possible to be a post-congregational Baptist? I just loved that title, and I think he raises some good questions about church and belonging.

Quick Catch Up
Been lots going on since Easter, such as:
  • An away day with leaderships from 2 churches in Chippenham, Wiltshire
  • My home church weekend away at Pilgrim Hall
  • A training with a church on teaching the Bible to young people
  • Assignment for my last college module (just the small thing of dissertation to look at now!).
Clicking the link to Cliff College, I see the postgrad department has got some new titles happening such as "Mission and Religious Pluralism", "Celtic Mission and Evangelism", and "Mission and the World of Work". Looks good...

Meanwhile it's our 10th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow! (That makes me feel old!).
And a week or so off work, which I'm looking forward to.

Play that funky music?
Having posted a couple of years ago about dodgy Christian dance mats, and a couple of months ago about my poor attempt at playing "Guitar Hero", this post at youthblog amused me a lot!
