You Get What You Are | FullerYouthInstitute.org

You Get What You Are | FullerYouthInstitute.org | Family Catechism | Scoop.it
One Friday afternoon, another mom and I were invited to watch a “play” that the two five-year-olds had created. In this play, there were no fairies, doggies, or princesses. The “story” revolved around my daughter playing me and giving her “daughter” a grim lecture. The other mom and I laughed (somewhat awkwardly) at the scene. But long after the other family walked down our driveway, one question sat on the front steps of my heart: Was that my daughter’s primary picture of me?

What Do My Students Need When Transitions Happen? | FullerYouthInstitute.org | Family Catechism | Scoop.it
It was the day my students exploded. One of my most faithful and exuberant leaders announced that she was leaving. Her announcement was like letting a skunk loose in the center of a middle school dance. It stunk, and so did the rest of our team as we tried to help students understand that everything was going to be okay.

Leading our kids into calling | FullerYouthInstitute.org | Family Catechism | Scoop.it
“'For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” I’ve probably heard these words from Jeremiah 29:11 a thousand times, almost never in context. Usually we invoke this verse as a promise that God is going to give someone a job, help them out of a difficult situation, or make their college scholarship package line up perfectly so they can attend the school of their dreams. And then there’s the aftermath.

Reimagining the Gospel in Relationship, Part 1 | FullerYouthInstitute.org

Reimagining the Gospel in Relationship, Part 1 | FullerYouthInstitute.org | Family Catechism | Scoop.it
Most of us have grown accustomed to a gospel that is a boiled-down series of abstract statements to be “believed.” They are typically colorless statements about God’s love, sin, and Jesus’ death. People must accept their truth in order to go to heaven and live a “good life,” which is described as vaguely as it is variously. This disembodied gospel supposedly positions people to make “a decision for Christ,” and is to be their frame of reference for everything.

Helping Kids Keep the Faith | FullerYouthInstitute.org | Family Catechism | Scoop.it
My wife, Meredith, and I welcomed our son into the world last January. Like most parents, we have a lot of hopes for him. We hope he’ll be happy and healthy. We hope he’ll be compassionate and independent. We hope he won’t grow up to be a Yankees fan. The status of the next generation of Christians has been the cause of much hand-wringing, guess-making, and anecdote-peddling for about as long as there has been a next generation to worry about, but only recently has there been much reliable data from which parents and youth workers can learn.
