Ian strikes gold…

Ian MacDonald is the legendary Youth Work Adviser in Oxford Diocese. His blog is internationally reknowned for many reasons…not least the kind of thing he’s writing about here.

He lists 7 deadly sins of youth work. I loved them so much that I thought I’d stick ’em on here. Let me know what you think:

‘Making yourself the focus of the youth ministry
Isolating the youth ministry from the life of the Church
Instilling Information not facilitating exploration
Modelling an eternal adolescence
Avoiding accountability
Not maintaining your own inner life
Thinking you have nothing more to learn’
