Progressive Youth Ministry

March 6, 2018 - March 9, 2018
Montreat Conference Center, 401 Assembly Drive, Montreat, NC 28757 United States+ Google Map
Montreat Conference Center

It can be difficult for a youth worker who identifies as “progressive” or “liberal” to find resources and support. Most events, conferences, camps, and curricula cater to evangelicals.

Montreat Conference Center

You’re the miracle that happened in the desert for those who’d passed through. Such a claim as this alerts us to the vital embers that glow within the language and imagery of Rilke’s “prayers.” They often draw, as we see in these lines, from ancient stories and traditions—in this case, the account of the exodus from the Hebrew Scriptures. Or is his reference to something closer to us, an experience we know in our own lives? Image, gesture, memory: these…
