The Art of Discernment

How do we listern to God for direction in both the grand scheme of life and in the day-to-day decisions? Contemplative youth ministry expert Mark Yaconelli gives us his thoughts on discerning God’s voice.

Service: the heartbeat of youth ministry

In the wake of government cuts and the concept of a Big Society, veteran youth work specialist Andy Burns casts a vision for putting service to the local community at the heart of our youth work rationale.

Contemplative ministry expert Mark Yaconelli explores how we can access the spiritual gift of discernment as we seek to lead young people, and make decisions about our own future.

A year after David Cameron unveiled his Big Society vision, which places community groups at the heart of public service, Andy Burns asks what it might truly mean for us to serve our communities, and suggests how doing so might begin to transform them in ways the Prime Minister never envisaged.
