It is easy to think about space these days. Atlantis landed early this morning bringing a close to three decades of space shuttle service, Yesterday, we celebrated the 42nd anniversary of man landing on the moon.
Recently, UK buddy blogger Jack Ragan pondered over links between lessons learned form the effort of putting man on the moon (still a very significant historic game changer) and our own need in the field of youth ministry for get it right and to make the changes neccesaary to fo so.
We make this efforts because it is hard, because we are challenging ourselves to go further, and to be better and to achieve more are part of what it means to be alive. Jack’s lessons learned include:
> Accept the fact that you are going to have a few fights along the way.
> Don’t get drawn into spats.
> If you have an idea, make it happen. and
> Hope and Pray.
It’s a good read as we all choose to shoot for the stars.
