NYMC is back for 2011. It’s a youth ministry conference held every two years in Australia. Here are my blog posts from the 2007 event (I couldn’t make it in 2009). It has speakers and participants from a spectrum of different youth ministries and theological camps. I think it’s a valuable conference and would encourage you to come along and join in the conversation! Register by June 30 for the early bird spesh.

Check out this article from this week’s Australian Financial Review: Beware the Anti-Nanny State Police (PDF). It’s a great article on protecting the vulnerable in society. My brother wrote a letter agreeing with the article from a Christian perspective. Here it is:
I think it’s a thoughtful, intelligent response. Tidy work bro :)
The conference audio is now available from the “A Fresh Look at Mission” conference. It was held last Friday in the Sydney CBD. A really useful day and with some great content. I look forward to continuing to engage in thinking through how to reach Sydney and the World with the good news of Jesus.
I was particularly encouraged by John Dickson’s vision in the final talk.
Unless you’re a professional, it’s not cool to ride a bodyboard when you’re 30! So next summer, I plan on finding a cheap surfboard and shredding some salt. In the meantime, I enjoy learning from the daily photo gallery emailed out by the Saltmotion Gallery Manly.
Joel and his team take regular shots of Northern Beaches waves as well as pics from surfing trips around the globe. Check out their website.
I’ve been given permission to use their pics on blog posts. So keep an eye out for more pics in the future! Peace.
After a killer time with Mike McCarthy at Paradox during April, we’re running another one in a couple of weeks time. For various reasons (Thomas is one of them!) I was slow off the mark in securing an artist for the night. But I’m very excited (and thankful) that Jake Nauta has agreed to play. He’s originally from the well-known and much-loved band Playjerise.
3 Quick Shout-Outs
- Jake Nauta – check his website. Grab his latest gear on iTunes.
- Creation Swap – I blogged on them last week. Sweet free design stuff. I didn’t have much time to produce promo material. It didn’t take too long to edit this free photoshop file and produce a smart looking business card.
- Worldwide Online Printing – I’ve used them for a number of years. Since coming to St Faith’s Narrabeen, I’ve been using the Brookvale office for print jobs. Super speedy service, competitive prices and amazing turnarounds on print jobs. Check ’em.
A bunch of Aussie Christians have responded to the Aussie Muslims’ billboard about Jesus with their own billboard. I think it’s an intelligent, thoughtful and respectful response to the MyPeace campaign. Religious dialogue can be courteous! www.aussiechristians.com.au
