Workshop – A Short Tour of Big Ideas that Shape Youth Culture

Time: 9:30 Sunday
Where: Redwood Upstairs
Style: Interactive Workshop
Interest: General
CoreTopic: Established Leaders

We hear about Lady Gaga and “sexting” and raves and Facebook. But, what does it all mean? And what kind of ideas drive the culture in which our teenagers live, breathe and consume? If youth culture is like a river, with it’s big waves and deep troughs, this seminar will help you to better understand it’s contours and currents, and how those contours and currents impact the way your teenage son or daughter sees the world.

You’ll leave this seminar with a better understanding of paganism, pluralism and postmodernism, and how these three strains of thought impact a teenager’s world-view; some of the practical implications for raising teenagers in a “multiple choice” moral climate; the difference between “looking at” and “looking along”, and how each approach impacts the way teenagers experience God.
