Practicing Discernment with Youth:
A Transformative Youth Ministry Approach
The future of youth ministry, argued in this book, must include equipping youth and congregations with skills for bringing the gospel into creative tension with the particular questions and circumstances of our lives and those of our youth - including questions of lifestyle, vocation and social responsibility. If youth ministries are to resist the cultural influences that dilute the power and hope of the gospel, we need to recover practices of discernment that bring the gospel into conversation with our lives and the culture in which we move.
In this book, youth and congregations are introduced to the organic rhythms of discernment that include ancient and modern practices of listening, understanding, dreaming, and acting.
This book is about teaching young people to listen and respond to what they hear within and without, to the cries of the suffering, to the broken heart of God, and to their own yearning to speak and act.
