i’ve been thinking.. we talk a lot that youth leadership is ‘doing life’
with your kids.. but really, it’s not if we start clinging to our holidays
as a chance not to do youth work… which seems to be what’s happening at
the moment. kids wanting to go to summer harvest and other stuff, but
leaders not able or wanting to go..same in school holidays. we’ve been
thinking about moving discipleship camp into the last weekend of
term2/first weekend of the holidays. one of the main resistance points is
the question of whether leaders feel ripped off then.
maybe a change in philosophy is needed.. but wait.. i like that
philosophy.. so maybe a change in the way we do youthwork is needed.
