    Just finished watching the family-first youth ministry documentary that Tanner posted. I’ve been reading a lot of this kind of stuff recently and I’m curious for what any of you, including Tanner, thought of the conclusions. I’m generally underwhelmed by some of the exegetical foundations myself, though like most things, there are some good correctives here.

    I watched Divided a week or two ago. After a decade of working with teens in church ministry and Christian education, I found myself agreeing with more than I disagreed with in that movie. It also reminded me of the last few minutes of Paul Washer’s “Ten Indictments.” While I don’t believe in an all-or-nothing approach to youth ministry, I do believe there is one pastoral calling: to word and sacrament. That being said, we as the church have to do a better job of discipling fathers to disciple their children. And just as importantly, the local congregation needs to be intentional in apprenticing our young men an women to older men and women other than their parents who can help parents train them not only in spiritual matters, but in the practical manners of manhood and womanhood.
