SoeBeck's Principles of Youth Ministry

So, my one adoring reader asked me to please post something new, so here you go.

I have a fundamental principle in youth ministry. For all of those youth ministers out there, pull up a chair and listen up, because I have some sage advice for you:

Don't do lock-ins. Seriously, they are evil and of Satan.

Now, I don't really like Lock-outs either, overnight events where you move around every few hours to different places - i.e. bowling alley, ice-rink, etc., such as the one we are doing tomorrow night. Lock-outs though are 100 times better than lock-ins, and are necessary to do once a year or so to get everyone off your back to have a lock-in.

Of the devil, I'm telling you.

Also of the devil are Gym's, like the one I just joined. That's what I am looking forward to the most about heaven, awesome abs with no working out. Yup, that's what I look forward to the most.

Oh, and the hanging out with our Lord and Saviour.

Is there going to be sex in heaven? That is a fun topic to discuss. This guy thinks, yes.

I'm out.
