I tend to ponder, to noodle, to chew on. And then I tend to draw a fairly strong conclusion and move on. I haven’t drawn any conclusions on this stuff yet…mostly because I think they are all worth chewing on a little while longer. Most of them weren’t wrapped in a ton of context so I won’t provide much for you. Just statements that are worth pondering, I think.
“Youth Workers Tend To Be Lazy”. Ouch. And stated by a youth ministry expert who doesn’t work in a local church. But worth consideration.
“Social Justice Is The New Legalism”. Zinger. Noodling….noodling….noodling.
“We elevate and idolize family in a way scripture never intended!” Oh, boy! chewing….chewing…chewing….
“Jesus’ pace was slow; ours should be, too”. Pondering….pondering….pondering
There you go. Since most of the readers of this blog are youth workers, and we are a lazy bunch….you should have plenty of time this week to chew on those statements. Don’t instantly dismiss them because there is oftentimes a nugget of truth in the things people of intelligence (and all of these statements were made by sharp minds) have to say.
