Curates, Mission & Young People

“If you look at something 999 times one is perfectly safe, if however one looks for the 1000th time, you are in frightful danger of seeing it for the first time” GKC
Really enjoyed an afternoon with the curates exploring mission and attempting to take a “thousandth glance” at church engagement with young people, community and culture.
If anyone is calling in from the session then please accept my thanks for the level of engagement and for the humour/fun. If you are looking for some notes or links.
We looked at:
Vincent Donavan Christianity Rediscovered
Bishop Lesslie Newbiggin (whose work I failed to even come close to doing justice to)
Mark Yaconellis work detailed in the book Contemplative Youth Ministry
Richard Passmore (see FYT)
I’ll upload the slides as handouts. Any other things we talked about can probably be found via the Search function (top right) or by e-mailing me
