Many blogs, not just this one, noted their own top-ten postings in year-end reviews. The number one selection for the Christian Century was posted a year ago and asked Is Youth Ministry Killing the Church?
Pastor Kate Murphy, of Hickory Grove Presbyterian in Charlotte, NC, wonders if we been “unintentionally disconnecting kids from the larger body of Christ… ministering them right out of the church. . . The kids I’ve previously pastored never sat around a table with adults at church-wide fellowship events — they had their own program options. They’ve never worked side by side with other members to put on a neighborhood vacation Bible school—they were off on their own mission trips.”
It is an article worthy of noting, including the comments it solicited.
