GET OUTTA MY FACE!
No I'm not talking about you. That the title of a new work from Dr. Rick Horne written for Christian parents, teachers and youth workers on the subject of reaching angry, unmotivated and disinterested teens with biblical counsel.
I'm recommending this book for a couple of reasons. First, I'm convinced that this book will prove a valuable tool as the church seeks to connect with a generation of young people who for a good many reasons are angry, unmotivated and disinterested. You can read more about the book here.
Second, I know the author. Dr. Horne has been a faithful member of CLF for several years. I've observed his humility and godliness up close and personal as well as his genuine love and care for young people. Everyone at CLF values the good doctor's counsel and we look forward to his weekly exhortation during the responsive reading of the Psalms. He also leads our adult Sunday school class and is doing a marvelous job taking us through the book of Revelation.
And it doesn't stop there. The good doc has also made a couple of guest appearances on holy, hip -hop projects.
So pick up the book and make good use of it in ministry and if you're ever in Philly on a Sunday please consider dropping by CLF to give a shout out to our dear brother Horne.
To Him Who Loves Us...
