Spiritual Practices in Youth Ministry

Practices of Love for Youth Workers, James K.A. Smith and Kyle David Bennett – Video and Discussion Outline

Dr. Kyle David Bennet discuss his book, “Practices of Love” and how it applies to youth workers.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. How are these spiritual practices not “extra,” but indeed fundamental for us, and crucial for us to live loving, everyday lives?
  2. How is silence a re-posturing, and a peace-making effort? How does our culture teach us/encourage us not to do this?
  3. How might our programs need to be tweaked in order to open the door for this?
