Ok, so I'm on a roll with sharing videos... but this video (once again from The Work of The People) with Peter Rollins has been on my mind.
Crack House Church from The Work Of The People on Vimeo.
What would it be like if we let the Church be a bit more human? What would it look like for church to be a place where we came to terms with and worked out our suffering... perhaps to work out our salvation with fear and trembling? How about in Youth Ministry?
I think that this "Church as crack house" illustration might be especially and tragically true of most of our youth ministries.
