Deconstruction

So, in light of yesterday’s post which was written over two weeks ago and last week’s sporadic posting, I think (three days before posting this) we will just spend a little time going off the usual program and just reflecting.

I’ve been thinking about deconstruction lately, and this act by Nina Conti (which I thought was brilliant – even if slightly late nightish off-color and off-kilter)tipped me over the edge. Her act starts at the 29:50 mark.

Deconstruction can describe a methods of critical analysis involving discovering, recognizing, and understanding the underlying—and unspoken and implicit—assumptions, ideas, and frameworks that form the basis for thought and belief…

Which has me wondering… What would dsconstructing youth ministry look like? And  how ‘bout deconstructing self while at it?

Scott recently married the lovely Anne and together they have five adult young people and also grandparent three delightful kids (so, maybe he is just plain old!) Scott presently serves at Saint John the Evangelist in Columbia, MD as the director of youth and young adult ministry.
