i preached this last weekend at my church. it was about the need for belonging, as a reflection of god’s character in us, but heightened in our current context by cultural realities. it totally came out of my thinking and writing on the youth ministry 3.0 book. i felt like the “affinity” need i talk about in the book is so much more than just an adolescent task, and is really a life-long human longing. but, readers of this blog will recognize many of the words and themes from the stuff i’ve posted about that book.
the podcast is here, if you care to listen.
