lots of good challenges and questions and rants this week about the state of youth ministry. ooh — all this gets me excited, because tough questions and complex problems are usually the impetus to substantive change (in our lives, in our thinking, in our systems, in our programs, in our models and assumptions and metrix and…).
so i enjoyed reading seth barnes’ post. seth is the founder and exec director of adventures in missions (really, the short-term missions org i trust more than any other — though they think of themselves more as a discipling ministry than a short-term missions ministry these days). he’s got a freakin’ brilliant and inquisitive mind. if you have any interest in thinking about discipleship (or practicing it!), you need to read his blog.
