    11 Million Take Over Day

    Here's a great idea passed on by overseas youth ministry blogger Ian -- 11 Million Takeover Day:
    In a nutshell, November 23rd is a day when as many adults as possible are encouraged to let young people take over some or all of their role. Being a school day some of the events we'll be promoting will be over the weekend BUT all our Bishops (and we've got loads of them) are on board...
    How about setting aside the whole week and inviting youth to take over leadership of parts of the church where they rarely have a voice? How about letting them help with hospital visitations? How about inviting youth to pick the sermon topic and hymns for worship? Or better yet, how about letting a youth preach on that weekend? How about, as Ian suggests, letting youth post the entries to your blog?
