I am a meteorologist and a former youth leader at church…I have a lot to say on both subjects…and then some
Today was a bit slower in pace as it was the last day. I went to a Seminar about experiential worship, very cool. The End general session was good with Chris Tomlin the worship leader and the president of YS Mark O. The speaker. He was pretty good with a good outside the box message. After the end, the four of us went to eat. We said our goodbyes, although we will see each other in a couple of days and parted company.
Mary and I headed south into Mt. Lebanon where my aunt and uncle live. It was a great night to visit and relax. The only damper on the evening, was when I released my emergency brake and it didn’t seem to disengage. We have a plan for tomorrow. I’m praying that we can make this so we can get back for our Crown financial class and to see my uncle Dave. We will see.
NYWC Day 5 The end
Hi Jeff. I appreciate your blogs on the YS convention. I am attending in Nashville in a few weeks and just thought I would ask you what your favorite workshop was. Please let me know. Thanks, Matt
I had three favorites and since I have been getting into contemplative/experiential worship as of late they all kind of focused on that theme. One was Mike King’s Youth Worker as Spiritual Guide: Nurturing a Presence-Centered Youth Ministry. Maggie and Duffy Robbins on Lectio Devina and Lilly Lewin’s Creating Sacred Spaces: A Practical Introduction to Experiential Worship. As I type this, I realized that Duffy Robins also did one called Reading the Bible for All It’s Worth. That was on manuscript/inductive Bible study (not a contemplative obviously). Those 4 were at my top.
