* Is your youth program getting stale? Spice it up with a dash of childlike spontaneity! Encouraging you to be open to God's creative power, Spindle explores what an imaginative youth ministry looks like, the playfulness of Christ, innovative worship, the importance of recreation for the church and the world, joyful trips, and more. 128 pages, softcover from Barefoot Ministries.
Great, another book about games in youth ministry. Not quite. Dodgeball Theology is about exploring what it looks like to include play and imagination within your youth ministry. Often we can become consumed with functionality in the church and by doing so we forfeit beauty. Our ministries, even our own spiritual lives, become experiments in pragmatism kept free from the wastefulness of childlike spontaneity and void of God's creative power. In this practical guide, see how you can practice a theology of play within your youth ministry today (Bonus: There is a 'choose your own adventure' part of the book )
