Riding the bus has given me great opportunities to read and process things that I normally don’t get to for some reason. Like today, I ended up working through a book, The Perfect Program: and Other Fairy Tales. It’s a youth ministry book, by a guy named David Chow. It’s a great book, and it’s a nice reminder that all the aspects of youth ministry, all the criterion for success, all the standards and metric, all the people, and everything you do is a process. It’s never going to be perfect.
It’s just a good reminder from time to time, that there is always more to do, more to learn, and more to improve upon. It’s a great little book for youth pastors to read, and I greatly recommend it.
