Share More Than Your Opinion
I am excited to see facebook pages popping up and websites like Stuff You Can Use and Youth Leader Stash. It is not that great magazines like Group Magazine or Youth Worker Journal aren't giving us places to share, but there should be more. I am scouring the web looking for others who are willing to share, especially in the Middle School/Jr. High forum. I have found some great post about theology, culture, helpful hints, but not as much just plain "hey, here you go, this what worked great with my group." I would just love to see more blogs and online places popping up where we as MS/JH workers can "pool" our stuff. Maybe I am wrong and I hope I am. It just seems to me that there are a lot of blogs and social media dedicated to selling, promoting, defending, and just plain presenting opinions. All of which is great to a point, but I would just love to see more sharing of the day to day resources. That is why I am trying to make my little place here, a spot to share more than my opinion.
If you know some great people, places and blogs that are doing this well, let me know. I would love to send them an apology and some flowers...or something? For now please feel free to rummage around here for whatever you can find that will help you in your ministry. As always feel free to comment or send me a message about any question you have. I am always willing to help and share whatever I am doing or have learned in my 18 years of doing youth ministry.
