Take a quick look at this photo. To what is your eye eventually drawn to in the image?
In all the noise and distraction of the advertising, what we notice most is... a face. It is the one thing in the photo that holds the most meaning. Consider how this image might speak to the current discussion about attractional and missional youth ministry. What might all the distraction and visual "noise" in the image represent? Our over-programmed ministries, full of activities that have little to do with the life of faith? And what of this single face? Could it be a reminder that when all the programming is said and done, what really matters in our ministries is relationship: our relationship with each other, with the people we are called to serve, and with God?
