It's said an image is worth a thousand words. But all too often, its better to stick with pictures and leave the thousand words out of communication. Worth a Thousand Words is a book on the cutting edge of ministry. The way images conjure thoughts, emotions, and relative life experience without even trying, is nothing short of remarkable.
We've been using similar techniques in our work with teenagers and find the conversations quickly turn into deeper spaces able to help get at the heart of a particular issue a student is dealing with.
We live in an image driven world, and the best way to give students the opportunity to open the doors to their hearts is to use images. I'm excited to watch the Church embrace these transformative ministry tools, and continue to meet the next generation where they are. After all, to live life WITH students rather than AT them always produces fruit.
Take some time to dive into this powerful book. It will change the way you think about ministry, and it will help connect you with people you're trying to connect with.
