To drop their nets, and follow him. Following is a familiar concept for the children and young people we work with, they follows 100s of people on Youtube, Twitter and Instagram feeds; the world encourages them to follow and live a certain way of life. In a world where the next generation are burdened by anxieties, exam stress and sexual pressure, Jesus says: "Drop them and follow." As they drop these 'nets' what is it that they take up? Jesus' invitation is profoundly simply and effortlessly timeless: follow.
Building on the Territorial theme of Discipleship; being a Disciple - everyday, in everything and everywhere, we'll explore who we're following and how this shapes faith and formation in the lives of 21st Century youth and children. What kind of leadership will be effective in this new world and how can we as Salvation Army youth and children’s workers respond and rally to Jesus’ radical call to drop our nets and Follow.
