Podcast04: Introductory reflections on Children's Ministries in the 21st Century

This podcast is a recorded discussion between Shelly and Wesley Fryer about the first chapter of the book, "Children's Ministry in the 21st Century: The Encyclopedia of Practical Ideas" released in 2007 by Group Publishing. The first chapter by Rick Chromey is titled "Not of This World," and provides an overview of choices available to parents and other caregivers who aspire to help children develop into ethical, responsible decisionmakers in the 21st century information culture. Rather than follow either extreme of cultural isolation or immersion, Rick advises a middle course which not only promotes social inoculation of youth to negative influences within our culture, but also a higher path of incarnational living within culture that can ultimately transformative. Dialog, discernment, discipline, and the value of both relationships and words are emphasized. This chapter provides excellent ideas for framing conversations in "digital dialog" about the ways we should aspire to help our children develop into responsible and moral adults.
