Just read this interesting post from Darren over at the Youth Ministry Blog.

It's about manipulation in youth ministry. It made me think that it's probably quite a fuzzy boundary between being culturally relevant and proclaiming the good news of Jesus and simply manipulating young people to do or think whatever you say they should. It also got me thinking about how you define manipulation when it comes to young people. I've posted a comment there which is still awaiting moderation. So should appear soon.

Good food for thought.
