Give Up the Goldfish

The Rooted Blog's newest contributor, Brian Cosby, is the author of the new book, Give Up the Gimmicks: Reclaiming Youth Ministry From the Entertainment Culture, which he promoted on The Gospel Coalition website this week.  Read the article here in which he implores youth ministers to "give up the goldfish", so to speak:

"With all my heart, I plead with you to not be tempted with "success," professionalism, or the fading fads of our entertainment-driven culture. Rather, pursue Jesus as the all-satisfying Treasure that he is and feed his young sheep with the means God has provided."

We couldn't have said it better ourselves.  Welcome to the team, Brian!
