YM Quotes:

Youth ministry is always a challenge. Youth ministry is consistently changing. Youth ministry is regularly surprising. Youth ministry is fresh all the time. (Mark Oestreicher)

Although students need guidance from good leaders, we often take on too much of the responsibility for their knowledge about God. We want them to blindly adopt our opinions rather than work out their own understanding. Instead we must help young people learn how to think for themselves with God’s perspective as their foundation and the Word of God as their rule. (Sean Dunn)

•    Divide the group into teams (at least 5 people per team).

•    Teams form a circle and spread out a bit.

•    Players have to close their eyes and stretch out their arms (forward).

•    Players have go slowly forward until they touch another hand and grab it (it is important to grab hands from two different people, they also should not grab the hand of their neighbour).

•    If all hold hands, they can open their eyes

•    Then they need to untangle their knot without letting go of the other peoples hands.

•    The team who untied their human knot (stand in a circle again) first wins. (It is ok if not all players face the inside of the circle after untying.)
