Some time ago, I noticed that how I describe what a junior youth group is, has not changed over the passed years. This made me think, should we not evolve and perfect how we describe the junior youth program as we gain more experience and learn more? Surely, our understanding today is more than five years ago. Maybe how we understand and therefore describe the junior youth program evolves or maybe not. However, here is a very small compilation of how the junior youth group has been described (chronologically ordered). Also, below the extracts, there are links to webpages that describe the junior youth program.

Every now and then, I read a good non-fiction book. After having read it, I try to present the main points and the reasoning of the author, only to find myself failing. It seems that although  I have read the book, I have not really read or understood it as I should have. In order to remedy this, I experimented with a method. The method is simply to identify key sentences in each chapter or section and then number them. If I am successful in my attempt, I can go back and read those key sentences and get a pretty good repetition of the main points of the chapters. I tried this with the book “Revelation and Social Reality” written by Mr. Paul Lample. It is indeed a really good book about the whole process and relation between the Word of God and transformation of our own selves and our Society. I feel that, having read this book, I have widened my perspectives and increased my understanding of how the process of social transformation can take place. What I did more this time, was to write down all the key sentences and thus creating an outline of the book. One could perhaps say it is also a compilation. The outline cannot replace reading the book but it can, I hope, prove to be a powerful tool in better understanding and remembering what one has read.

Fortunately, this book can be downloaded for free from the publishers webpage – Palabra Publications.

You can find the outline here, Outline of Revelation & Social Reality
