I am not an expert on post-modernity, but I am acquanited with the topic a little, and it effects all those who minister to youth. My question, to hopefully engage us in conversation is, since one of the trends in our postmodern youth is to follow a set of beliefs that work, or something that's practical, how do we as the church effectively minister to teens to show them that being a follower of Jesus works?

    Recent conversation with a friend, we talked about how something practical pertaining to PM was a contradiction of sorts. Can you say paradox?

    Jason, I think the key word is "show" if we can't do it than how do we expect them to. I have alot of this issue with my youth, not of myself not doing but of the pm thing, and I can relate with your struggle. The best advice that I have recieved came from my Senior Minister , whatever tactics you implore besure to keep Jesus first.
