by Jane Clark Lindle
Affirming Their Faith, Dispelling Old Myths: Ministry with Young Adolescents dives headlong into the sea of confusion surrounding young people between the ages of 10 and 13. Dr. Jane Clark Lindle debunks old myths and offers fresh, encouraging perspectives on ministry with younger adolescents.
Topics cover the young adolescent and spirituality, service, prayer, sex and drugs, power struggles, and more. Each chapter offers questions to help readers assess their own parish's response to younger teens, plus ideas for reaching out in ways that will benefit both the young person and the parish community.
Lindle offers good news about young people's development and about the gift that young teens are for today's Church. Affirming Their Faith is designed to support those who are called to ministry with the younger adolescent and offers suggestions to strengthen parish ministry with them.
