Some Good Thoughts

I recently read an article in Relevant magazine that addresses two key things I think about lots. The issue of youth ministry and it's long-term impact on individuals, as well as the idea of Church being something we can 'do' differently as we have attempted at The Place here at Lambrick.

It's a bit long and will take about 5 minutes, but I think it's worth the read.

Read "Faith No More" by Jesse Carey

Thanks for pointing me toward that article AJ. It's been a while since I've delved into a Relevant report - seems they're digging deeper into some good stuff.

Being the rad (youth)pastor that I know you are - I'm very interested to hear your thoughts on some of the challenges presented...


p.s. only a few more blog posts and I'd say you're back to blogging "regularly." nice work.

It's a nice piece and well worth reading, folks.

I would chime in with ol' London Jimmy here. What, Andy, are your thoughts regarding the cultural changes? Sounds like the problems that faced my generation (I'm 40 now ... the first wave of the so called x generation) are not going away.

if you're a fan of Jesse's writing, I wanted to let you know that he just joined the roster of writers at my sports/faith site called Prayers For Blowouts. We explore the frequent collisions of sports and faith there on a regular basis. Not sure if that's your thing or not, but wanted to give you a heads up...

Hey Bryan,

Thanks for the pointer. I'll definitely check it out cause sports and faith are two of my favs and regulars in my daily dialogue.

As for my thoughts regarding the article... maybe I'll write a bit. In a bit. We'll see :)
