'Memories,' write Doug Fields and Duffy Robbins, 'are the milestones by which we mark our journey with God.' And the 50 ideas in Memory Makers do just that -- give you the wherewithal to create in students vivid memories. The authors have recalled the best (and worst) that serendipity has sent them during their many years in youth ministry, then translated those occasions into a rich portfolio of memories you can create for your own group -- moments that seem almost unplanned, moments that are out of the ordinary, that are particularly intense or adventurous or ceremonial. Memories created out of -- phone calls and letters, vidcam events and audio tapes, road trips and service projects, and meetings and overnighters. Memory Makers will kick start the kind of personal and group settings that create vivid memories. Whether you work with children, teenagers, or adults -- whether you're a leader or a parent -- you'll find years' worth of memory-making events and moments waiting here.
