Chapel & Book Review Link HERE"Youth can transform their lives, therefore transforming their neighborhoods and their cities, and when a congregation imagines together, they can work together to transform their current reality. The stories in this book come from experiences with youth from different racial and economic backgrounds and different genders. This book is for those who work with youth that for one reason or another feel hopeless. This text gives you a way of fostering hope by nurturing their imagination so that they can live into a personal future that is divinely inspired. As we work together with youth, we can build a context of hope and possibility. We can be fueled by the sanctified imagination. We can see where theological reflection & personal experience embody vocation." Click to read more from Amazon.
