I’ve had a lot of requests for more resources for Wyldlife. I’ve also had lots of emails looking for help with talks. You can find a little of each on YLHelp (just use the search box on the site), but I thought this would be a perfect time to post some Wyldlife talks! This will be a series of five posts that capture five talks I did for a camp at Lost Canyon. I’ve spoke at Wyldlife summer camp in years past, but this one was recent so I thought it might be helpful. The context was actually not a Wyldlife group technically speaking, but a group of 300+ junior high students that was brought together by a 20+ year veteran of YL, so I basically did WL talks with a tiny tweak (see if you can spot some differences from traditional YL/WL talks as it goes along). Anyway, I hope these are helpful!
My theme for all of the talks was to “Live Worthy – By Following Jesus – Through the Power of Jesus”. In each talk I used an analogy of “superheros” to add continuity and curiosity. I will post my unfiltered talk notes, so they may be a bit cryptic. They are literally typed into a “text box” the same size as my Bible so I can cut them out and clip them on the front of my Bible when I speak. So I have to keep them brief and a bit cryptic at times. You will typically see an intro story, a scripture story, and a key phrase I say verbatim at the end of the talk right before I pray. I also will include the cabin time questions. These could turn into campaigner questions if you wanted to use them that way. Read the rest of this entry »
