An awesome postscript to youth work Summit 2011; http://dayinthelife-juliadj.blogspot.com/2011/10/it-all-comes-from-here.html
This weekend I went up to Manchester for Youth Work Summit 2011, in summary it was amazing. To read a bit more about the summit, and what it was about read this post http://www.easyrew.com/yws11/ , which just about sums it all up nicely [although I didn’t attend the retreat day]. The liturgy / poem that is reproduced there, and spoken collectively encapsulates so much of what it means to be a Christian youth worker.
I have been reflecting on what I think made the summit work, and I think there are three things that made it such a successful day.
But most of all God was clearly at work and speaking through what was said and going on.
There was so much to take in through out the day that it is hard to process it all, so I eagerly await videos of the various talks being uploaded so that I can go through each one once again and full absorb all of the excellent teaching. [And will no doubt blog about those, more for my benefit than for anyone else.]
If you are a youth worker and did not go, then make sure you keep 19th May 2012 clear for the 2012 Youth Work Summit. As a sample this is how YWS11 started…[youtube http://youtu.be/diA0qVjtZ4k%5D
