Wondering Wednesdays – what can I expect from you?

Sarah

I love this covenant to young people that Sarah contributed to our amazing ministry vision day last week at MCYM.  How much easier would life be sometimes if we spelt out what others can expect from us and what we expect from them.   I have found in ministry that there are lots of expectations on both sides but along the way quite a few mismatches!

In a culture with a lot of transience and impermanance a youth worker is someone who can provide a safe place, an accepting presence and someone to trust with one’s evolving sometimes fragile identity.
