Soul Shaper

I’m reading a fantastic book called “Soul Shaper” by Tony Jones all about “exploring spirituality and contemplative practices in youth ministry.” I bought the book because I’m interested in how spiritual disciplines and practices from across Church history can impact youth work. However it’s proving first and foremost a challenge to me! Tony Jones quotes Eugene Peterson to make the point, “I think the most important thing a pastor does is who he or she is” There’s a challenge when we tend to justify ourselves/our ministry by our doing, at the expense of our being!
