A couple of years ago, I became aware of an “alternative” youth worker’s gathering focused on ministry in urban areas. I had been familiar with Youth Specialties and the National Youth Worker’s Convention (attending several times) but the Urban Youth Workers Institute (UYWI) was new to me, and I’ve tried to figure out a way to justify my attending the event but haven’t been able to do so yet.
This morning I was wandering through the web when I came upon the UYWI web site. I discovered that they have posted mp3’s of many of the workshops offered at their event, including Shane Claiborne talking about “Jesus For President.” I ended up downloading about 12 different workshops, for there are some excellent topics offered by some interesting leaders.
