leonard sweet :: Second Century Youth Ministry: "There's been a radical shift in learning styles. Most adults learned by trial and error; teenagers learn by trial and success. In other words, we were taught that until we can get it right, don't do it. Until you get all your right beliefs down, until you understand this thing fully, you can't participate in ministry. For these trial-and-success kids, there's no concept of error. They learn by doing. How do you become a disciple of Jesus? You learn by doing.

So the church has got to have a greater toleration for mistakes, falls, failures, misconceptions, and miscues. Young people will learn to be leaders by doing it."
