A brilliant summary?
Sunday 21st September 2008 @ 3:44 pm / what I'm learning
I came across this quote in an article about a new mission agency called 'Word Made Flesh' ... I think it may be a beautiful summary of western young adulthood - but I'm not totally there ...
what do you think?
(now come on peeps - its been a while since comments have graced my box - and there really are things in this quote worth questioning ... )
"The challenge for WMF is working with those who are intelligent yet doctrinally confused, lonely yet community-resistant, cause-driven yet commitment-averse, idealistic yet cynical, magnanimous yet suspicious, and, not least, over-educated yet deep in debt—and challenging them to establish community with and among the oppressed of the world."

There's probably something missing around selfishness and impatience...

Intelligent yet doctrinally confused. there are a lot of people who's faith is more intelligence than feeling and acceptance and this can lead to being doctrinally confused. But then we all get it wrong in one way or another! Lonely yet community resistant. This is the most obvious one for me. Young people are lost - absolutely lost and searching for something but at the same time the community where they will discover that something is so alien to them! good summary - i like it!
