Presentation Transcript

  • Setting the scene – Philosophy

  • In working with young people do not try to call back to where they were and do not call them to where you are as beautiful a place as that may seem to you. You must have the courage to go with them to a place that neither you nor they have ever been before.

  • Vincent Donovan Christianity Rediscovered


  • Where are you, are you calling yp to that place?

  • What things that may seem beautiful or good that may hinder you from going to a new place?

  • What does going WITH them mean?

  • In working with young people do not try to call back to where they were and do not call them to where you are as beautiful a place as that may seem to you. You must have the courage to go with them to a place that neither you nor they have ever been before.
