Boring Post

November 19, 2007 at 8:45 pm 5 comments

I haven’t written in forever, and with this week, I probably won’t be able to for awhile. So, I thought I should probably write today. Of course, I don’t have anything compelling to write about. 

  I’m in the process of filling out a self evaluation. Let’s just say I don’t like those. Evaluating yourself is a tough job. I’m the kind of person who is hard on myself, so when asked questions related to how well I am doing stuff, I tend to think I stink at everything. Of course, that isn’t true, (or hopefully I would be out of a job) but it’s hard to be balanced with yourself. This evaluation has made me stop and think about whether the youth ministry and discipleship ministry is going in the right direction.  

I just finished reading a book entitled Contemplative Youth Ministry: Practicing the Presence of Jesus. I won’t go into great deal about the book, that’s Matt’s job. But I will say that it has challenged me in a number of ways. I’m looking forward to starting Revisiting Relational Youth Ministry.  This is quite possible the most boring post I’ve ever written. My deepest apologies. It’s Monday morning so what do you expect? Greatness? Hardly!  

I’ll try to have a more substantial post either right before thanksgiving or right after. Enjoy the break and I will type to you later!

    We have yearly evaluations that everyone does. Ripping yourself apart isnt fun, but its productive I imagine.

    brit, i think ripping yourself apart can at time really be a sense of false humility (aka pride)

    I did my self-evaluation this week. I think it’s a good thing. We should really probably do them every quarter; it helps me to focus.
