Gen Y Forum Day 1

a Biblical thought...
Away with the noise of your songs! I will not listen to the music of your harps. But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!
(Amos 5:23-24)

a Book thought...
Effective parents often do best at managing staff as they have had to learn skills in listening, understanding and negotiation. (p102)
a Dave thought...
Last night we had a Gen Y Forum where we invited four Young Adults from Melbourne to be part of our conversation. All of the participants are attending the Salvos but have decided not to become soldiers. Here are some quotes that can help us learn a little more about how many young people are thinking about the Salvos today…

“Mission is the key to getting young people involved in the Salvos. Not getting them to church, but getting them to witness what we do outside of the church, and perhaps introduce them to God through that process.”

Soldiership doesn’t appeal. Would rather make personal individual promises to God.”

“I would rather all the youth in the Territory get together and do something practical out in the community rather than have a rally together.”

“At the moment, I feel uncomfortable about the push for officership and the tactics being used. I don’t really appreciate it as I believe that it is all about the calling.”

Just a thought.
