Working Together
Great post from Chris looking at partnership in youth ministry.
Calling for more "joined up thinking" with partnerships within the church, between churches and with other agencies. Essential stuff.

Of course partnership is never easy.
In my experience it is easier to get youth leaders to work together than "clergy", because they often see the need and benefit of partnership on the ground and tend to be less bogged down with politics.
And I favour the language of partnership between churches over "ecumenism".

That song (again)
This site/facebook page is so interesting: You're my healer
Seems Kari Jobe has recorded the song
Given the controversy of the worship song's origins, fake cancer etc. (story here), this is a brave and potentially controversial move.
