This great City...

Earlier in the week I went up to King Henry's Mound in Richmond Park. I wanted to look over London, and one side you can see St Paul's and the other the view West. Fantastic. Urban life one one side, suburbia on the other.
As God said to Jonah "should I not be concerned about that great city"

Youth Ministarz
Song about youth ministers. Nice one. (ht to Brian)

Best line: "Youth ministers have beautiful do they do it?"

Doing some reading & thinking (and hopefully some writing for a booklet for churches in the LBA) about support for youth workers, both paid and volunteer.
It's summer and quiet time for blogs, but just wondering if anyone had any good stories or ideas for supporting those engaged in youth ministry. Negative stories would be quite easy to collect, but I'd like to hear some good practice ideas...

(I was hoping for a cheesy pic to go with this post, but couldn't find anything naff enough!)

Here's great thought provoking quote:
"The declining church always assumes that the solution to youth ministry is programmatic. If only they could get a good leader! If only they could find a great curriculum! If only they could renovate a room in the building for youth meetings! They fail to recognize that the solutions to youth ministry, like the solution to decline in general is systemic"
(Thomas Bandy in M. DeVries Sustainable Youth Ministry)
