I re-read Contemplative Youth Ministry yesterday as part of a bunch of work I am doing at the moment in the whole arena of Discipleship (a collaborative project through the Department of Mission). I was struck again by what an extraordinary piece of work it is. I can't believe it is nine years old now, it is a vital, compelling and wise book on how to be with God, how to be with yourself, and how to be with young people (and in fact, anyone).
I find myself convinced you should read this if you find yourself in any of the categories below:
1. You are a Youth leader
2. You have a ministry of ANY kind
3. You are a Christian.
I'm going to be at a conference in May where Mark is speaking, very excited about the chance to be in conversation with him.
