In research conducted by Smith (2011), he commentated on the projection of young adults and the challenges they face. He resolved that confusion reigns as these emerging adults try to make sense of the world they live in and formulate their thoughts on deeper matters and things like Sire’s (2015) questions. This confusion does create an opportunity for a christian worldview to restore Shalom by presenting the Bible as a worldview and restoring peace as a means of interpreting reality (Wolterstorff 2014 p259). This communication is laid upon the shoulders of teachers, in both christian and non-christian schools to allow the Bible to be a reasonable option to consider as governing of worldview. Within Christian Education, this mandate should be approached with passion and enthusiasm as they have a greater opportunity to teach this worldview and its benefits.
The practice of counseling draws primarily upon empirical research from the social sciences. Theological constructions comes from a variety of sources including philosophy, church history, and Scripture. When individuals look for counseling, they normally ask the counselor what they can do to change things and wonder why their life is turning out the way it is. Counseling, in a nut shell, helps clients develop skills to cope with the different situations in their lives while theological reflection can help clients make meaning of these same dilemmas. The integration of counseling practice and theology can take two forms: explicit and implicit integration.
While a student of virtue may well know what virtue is and has seen virtue practiced in the lives of others, they can still choose to deny those teachings and “go [their] own way”, as the song goes, or be tempted by the world and be led astray (Fleetwood Mac). But the Bible reminds us to “remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct” (NKJV Heb. 13:7). Here the Bible is telling the student to remember the teachings of their parents and how their parents’ actions affected the lives they lived, and if the student, the child, was taught as the Bible would have them be taught, then they will remember how their parents lived in virtue, and the impact it had on their lives, which was good, for the Bible says in Philippians, “The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you” (NKJV Phil. 4:9).
I strive to give my students more than good habits as a person in society. The mission statement I have developed for my ministry is revealing Jesus through Christ-centered leadership and transformational discipleship. The first part of that mission statement is revealing Jesus. My main purpose for youth ministry is to assist students in creating a foundation as they grow and mature. One of the first steps that need to be taken is to change the fact that “kids essentially see God as a ‘divine butter’ or a ‘cosmic therapist’- Jesus’ job is to help them do what they want, make them happy, and solve their problems.” Students need to understand the character of God and let that shape their lives instead of their lives shaping who God is to them.
1:3-6). The limitation also serve to further God’s work in developing spiritual maturity. The only way to gain spiritual maturity is to go through difficult life events and learn from them. In James 5, there is a section that mentions that the prayer of faith might make the person well if God would allow it. Just before this section, it was about being patience in suffering.
As a parent, it is their job to teach their children about expectations, rules, morals, and values. Children need a guideline of discipline to be taught right from wrong this ultimately will keep the child safe. Though religion holds the respect of fearing God, this method of punishment will teach children not to disobey, but some amount of leeway needs to be given to show that they are still loved by their parents. Generations of children and young adults have been spanked before, and it's made them think about their actions before going through with it. As long as it's used as a last resort and controlled, spanking should be
This is shown through the teachings of Isaiah and Psalm, the use of the creche, and communion. The sacred texts explaining the teachings of Isaiah and Psalm work hand in hand to encourage congregation members to accept and spread the word of the lord by sharing stories of the benefits of accepting and spreading the word of the lord. Additionally, the Psalm enforces the Anglican worldview of through repetitive statements proclaiming an acceptance of God’s word and monotheism. The use of the creche in the minister's sermon was a tactic used to target the worldview of young children, by having parents read the story of the birth of Christ, it allowed parents to develop skills that will enable them to continue to share mythic narratives with their children, enticing youth to accept Anglican ideology through an interactive story explaining the birth of Christ. Finally, the communion ritual is an extremely important Anglican ritual that was used to recognize the sacrifice Jesus made when he died for our sins and informs the congregation’s worldview by encouraging the congregation to remember the teachings of Jesus.
I can also compare my strengths and weaknesses to make a personal development plan to provide myself with motivation but this can also allow me to deliver a high quality service to the children and their parents during transitions, such as; delivering empathy, coping mechanisms and education. Consistency is key and I will be consistent with my behaviours and delivery to help the children progress and reach their full potential therefore I will continue carrying out observations to keep parents informed of their child’s progress when beginning school and throughout the year. I believe I have learned from my chosen theme on transitions. Beginning my essay I was nervous writing about transitions and this scared me from investigating different transitions that occur for children and how to support them. When I began to think of my own practice and investigate websites it give me a foundation to complete the essay but to also apply changes to my own
We also go up to Carpenteria and do ministry for the children up there. It’s a program called VBS and it’s where we teach children about jesus and how he loves us and how kind he was to everyone on the earth. So that hopefully they can go out into the world and share that same love with everyone else. And you have doctors who are devoted to helping people with diseases and illnesses. also in the book Ralph is trying to make shelters for everyone to keep them safe and give them a sense of home.
Some parents, in the video, talked about how they thought it was just a phase. So, some parents believed that they would grow out of it. While others just supported them in their decisions. And as a person pursuing a career in counseling, I do not entirely know how to handle something like this. But I know that as a Christian we should share the love of Jesus to them and not push what they are feeling aside.
Dean offers three practices of how to embody a missional imagination. The translation practice of catechesis, or knowing what one believes, “gives teenagers cultural tools that stake up young faith, improves teenagers’ exposure to the Son and therefore the likelihood that their faith will mature and bear fruit. The second practice of bilingual storytelling, or testimony, translates the language of the Christian story into the language of cultural context in order to help young people articulate and confess their identity as Christians. Finally, detachment through de-centering experiences like mission trips cultivates empathy and reflexivity through less of a focus on the self and more of an opening up to the other. Although the solution cannot be found by means of a pragmatic path that is guaranteed to end at the intended destination, this process can be summarized in one word.
My Christian worldview shapes my two philosophy choices in numerous ways. One way my Christian worldview shapes my Essentialism philosophy choice is by giving our student a road map of what will be expected as an adult. Psalm 32:8 states “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.” Just as God teaches, instructs, guides us daily, educators must teach our students the basic skills needed in order to thrive daily and as an adult. One way my Christian worldview shapes my Progressivism philosophy choice is by teaching our students to be considerate of others. Phillipians 2:3-4 states, “... in humility, value others above yourself, not lookin to your own interest, but each of you to
Kids are important because they grow up to be adults with power. They need to be taught how to make well-informed choices. We can teach them these things in children 's church. Teaching k-5th allowed me to help others grow, and to give back some of the lessons I was taught. My church also let me lead them in worship, allowing people feel closest to God during worship.
