The Wound That Never Heals
If you have followed me for very long, you've heard me say, "You will never understand today's youth and young adult culture until you see many of them through the filter of someone looking for a Dad." So what am I calling "The Wound That Never Heals"? It's the "Father Wound" or some may be struggling with a "Mother Wound." A simple survey with my own leaders, as we do ministry in the urban city of Atlanta, revealed about 85% of our students have significant hurt from this area.
This month's Youth Leader's Coach teaching goes to the heart of every youth pastor reaching out to a hurting generation. In it I share some simple strategies I've has learned through the years to overcome my own "Father Wound" and connect with others struggling with this pain in their lives.
