UYWI line-up

For all my SoCal friends, I'll be at UYWI at Azusa Pacific University this week and Living Hope Church on Sunday. Below are the UYWI workshops I'll be facilitating: Friday, May 19, 2006 1:30 PM 2:45 PM, Rm: Duke 119 (W) Joshua Paradox: Empowering Indigenous Leadership

Emerging leaders need mentors and spiritual disciple-makers to invest in their lives like Moses invested in Joshua. Appointed by God to deliver His people out of slavery, Moses understood early on that someone else would lead them into freedom. Yet Joshua is a paradoxial figure. For as much benefit as he received from his mentor, Joshual failed to reproduce the investment, and his spiritual legacy did not survive a single generation as a result. As indigenous leaders emerge around you, will they find a Moses that embraces, guides and encourages them to greatness? Or will they find a Joshua, someone too busy fulfilling his own destiny to in someone else's?
Saturday, May 20, 2006 1:30 PM 2:45 PM - Event Type: Forum (with Shane Clayburn and Michael Mata) A Dialogue about Living Out Social Justice in Your Community
Amidst a world plagued with pain and suffering, we often respond with brotherly love and good works as the Bible dictates. However, God also wants us to move beyond mere service. In this forum, a cacophony of voices will invite us to consider what it means to embody God's Kingdom coming on earth, and what it looks like to begin enacting God's justice in our neighborhoods and world.
3:15 PM 4:30 PM Have You Seen Your Kids' MySpace?
Radioactive B!+@H, Suckanut Slut, Boyish Sex Machine, NaughtyXXXAsh - porn stars or teens on MySpace? "Why should I care so much for everyone else when no one gives a s!*# about me?" "y do guys ... say that they like u but make u feel like s!*#?" "I will get you drunk and help you plot revenge against the sorry b@$!@&! who made you sad." "Why is it that life sucks?" "my mother ... i can't stand her!" Welcome to the world of teenagers, in their own words. These are just a few of the online identities and comments generated by teens on Myspace as they wrestle with emotional conflicts, relationship dramas, family strife, sexuality, and purpose. Businessweek calls the 70+ million young people with Myspace accounts (plus millions using other online social networks) the "Myspace Generation." How should the church engage?
