There’s a tension in youth work between process and product.
We talk more and more about ‘outcomes’ and ‘results’ and ‘objectives’ which are all about the product, the end result. We are more and more scared of process because it’s hard to measure and define.
It’s easy to make Easter all about the product. But if we do then we miss the benefits of the process.
Process is all about how you get there.
Process is all about what you learn along the way.
Process is about travelling.
Lent is a process time.
Don’t rush ahead to the end.
Value the journey.
