York Sunday News column: The Yearning of Young Collegians
In my last blog post I mentioned helping out with the CCO, the campus ministry organization that trains sharp folks to learn about wholistic campus outreach, and then forms partnerships with congregations that are near college campuses. I allude to them in this column (sadly, their strict word count had me editing out whole paragraphs, cutting entire sentences, and triming some of my more colorful adjectives.) In an earlier draft I named Billy Ferrell as the fella sent by the CCO to York, now working out of Asbury United Methodist.
And, of course, in any talk about caring for the youth of the church, I had to talk about how Derek Melleby and Don Opitz's new book (see the advert over to the left) will help with the college transition.
Read my Sunday News column, "The Yearning of Young Collegians."
What do you think?
Is there somebody---church staff? Parent? College-age student? you could send it to?
