From 201-2004 Dr. Michael Hryniuk and I co-directed the Youth Ministry and Spirituality Project. Our task was to research and develop a “Contemplative Approach to Youth Ministry.” It was a wonderful venture and we developed some very counter-cultural strategies for ministry with young people. Michael and I will be brought together to do a two day event on Youth Ministry as a School of Love (a phrase taken from St. Benedict’s monastic rule), June 1-2 at Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg, Canada. It should be a lovely weekend of prayer, meditative lectures, creative spiritual exercises, and good dialogue about youth ministry. If you have the time and resources join us in Winnipeg for the event. You can register here.
