Walter Wink’s ‘The Powers that Be’

In 2016 CONCRETE formed a Theology and Youth Ministry reading group. The aim of the group is to read something thought provoking every 6 weeks and meet to reflect on it in light of urban Youth Ministry. The group is made up of James Fawcett from CONCRETE, Naomi Luff from XLP and Tim Broadbent from St Mary, Islington. The first book we read was the ‘Powers That Be’ by the theologian Walter Wink. What follows is a brief summary of the book and highlights of a conversation about the text.

Prejudices – Pre – Judging

I’m always surprised by my prejudices. Young people seem to bring them out of me regularly. I think it’s really important to know them and understand them as to deal/challenge or avoid them.

Appreciate me!!!!!!!

I love the story of the feeding of the 5000. I was thinking that potentially quite a lot of the 5000 missed the miracle.

What to do when you screw up…

From the moment we open our doors on a Thursday evening at Urban Hope a million decisions have to be made in split second moments, and no matter how experienced and focused you are inevitably you will make the wrong call.

5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6: 5-7 New International Version (NIV)
