I started Mark Yaconelli’s Growing Souls: Experiments in Contemplative Youth Ministry and was struck by a thought in the opening chapter that I wanted to share with you.
“Driven by our own fearful voices we run ahead of grace, frantically seeking a plan, a strategy, a formula for securing a Christian life. a culture that no longer listens to God becomes increasingly noisy. Every idea must be exploited, every insight publicized, every sermon downloaded, every passing thought blogged and posted. We live in a time when everyone is talking at once – a time when the truth isn’t hidden, but drowned in a sea of irrelevance.” (page 18)
So what do you think?
