A podcast about following Jesus and ministry with youth.
The weight of the way forward (1)
In this introductory episode I suggest that we have placed an unhealthy weight on ourselves in trying to answer the question, "Where are we going?" As a corrective measure, I believe we need a refresh of our theological understanding of the truth that 'God is present'.
Earth is crammed with heaven (2)
The life of Jesus alerts us to a beautiful truth embodied in this quote by Elizabeth Barret Browning, “Earths crammed with heaven, and every common bush afire with God, But only he who sees takes off his shoes; The rest sit round and pluck blackberries." In this episode I explore how we confine the activity of God to a few programmes and events by drawing a line around the sacred.
It’s a yoke (3)
In this episode I suggest 3 considerations to help us shift our awareness to the activity of God. (1) We live in a culture that is in opposition to the Kingdom of God (2) Ministry with youth is a yoke not a baton (3) Our adopted posture should be, “Yes, your servant is listening.”
