It’s been a while since my last Linkworthy post. Some good stuff I’ve seen over the past few weeks:
- Common misconception about student ministry: Student Ministries must be fun and entertaining because students have a short attention span and need lots of stimulus in order to keep them engaged.
- Some radical ideas for rethinking education. I like radical ideas.
- Are the Brains of Reckless Teens More Mature Than Those of Their Prudent Peers? (HT: Jake Bouma)
- 71 fundraising ideas for youth ministry.
- A youth ministry myth seems to be busted: college does not kill students’ faith.
Ecclesiology & Church
- Mainline Churches: The Real Reason for Decline – Orthodoxy matters. It’s an old article, but I just found it this week.
- Robert Benne on the ELCA
- 3 positive effects of the recession on the church.
- “How much will it cost?” is the wrong question for churches to ask.
- Ideas for rethinking ordination.
- Ordination and the Lord’s Table from David Fitch.
- An idea from a truly pro-life church.
- Greg Stier has some good thoughts on giving and stewardship.
- As someone who thinks he might want to write a book one day, these words from Bill Kinnon and Jordon Cooper are highly interesting. Perhaps I’ll stick to blogging.
- Drew shares some ideas for fixing healthcare and a video from Ron Paul.
- The power of social media. It’s real.
- On using “they” as a universal singular pronoun (i.e. “it is too hideous for anyone in their senses to buy”)
