In Walt’s book he describes how as youth workers we can become frustrated in how we communicate and minister to youth. He gives the story of a youth worker at a conference that asked a youth from his community who daily hung out outside his church to smoke before school how he could connect with him and is friends. With a chuckle he replied, “That’s easy! Get out of your office and come out onto the sidewalk with us!” This got me thinking about how we can hit the pavement. Where do we need to go in order to connect with these youth? And how can we hit the pavement?
