David ran across those whose meditation was on evil, revenge. And you covet and cannot obtain; so you fight and wage war. Mother Teresa made a stark and convicting observation which veteran youth minister Mark Yaconelli has also experienced. Has there ever been another society that has produced so many spiritual books, workshops, retreat centers, worship experiences, churches, and sacred fashion accessories?
The culture in which we minister seems ignorant to the fact that the plethora of Christian experiences, consumer products, and activities only belies our spiritual depravation and disconnection from God. We seek to cultivate within young people enough trust and faith in God that they might resist the powers and principalities that diminish them.
For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Meditation supports, supplements, and applies the more cognitive learning methods.

It allows God the Holy Spirit to utilize and apply the learning from these methods. There are a variety of forms of Christian meditation. Below is a list of possible resources. The key to teaching youth how to meditate is to do it. Do it yourself first to develop greater comfort. It is likely you already do some forms of meditation in your own devotional practices possibly without knowingly so.

In certain cases in-migration, often shaped by family and acquaintance networks, can dramatically alter the ethnic composition of a community and place new strains on the resources of small schools required to accommodate new English Language Learner ELL populations.
They describe a program designed to enable local educators and administrators to improve ELL reading instruction while simultaneously acting as agents of change in their schools and communities. Butera and Costello also focus on a specific set of students in their discussion of special education in the rural context, where the proportion of special-education-classified students is nearly twice the national average NCES This is significant given that most preparation programs for special educators focus on urban contexts.
These programs are therefore not well-placed to train educators to identify the particular assets of rural communities that may aid in the provision of special education.
Butera and Costello describe a professional development course emphasizing parent partnerships and focusing on how biography and place affect teaching practice. The authors argue that the professionalization of education and its transformation into a standardized technology for content delivery has undermined the school-community connection.
The volume concludes with a discussion by Schafft regarding how educational accountability has over time aligned directly with the economic imperatives of the state, assuming market models and fundamentally weakening the relationship between school and community. This has led, Schafft argues, to a shifting of educational allegiances within schools away from a broader accountability to community and society, in favor of accountability to sets of abstracted institutional and bureaucratic mandates, raising troubling questions about not only the nature of accountability, but the nature of education itself.
Schafft argues, however, that community engagement and educational improvement are not only complementary but fundamentally interconnected priorities, and represent critical components of a necessary education for the twenty-first century and the challenges that lie ahead. The chapters in this volume offer historical and contemporary critiques of the ways that rural places, their people, and their schools have experienced cultural hybridity in the wake of capitalism, globalization, immigration, economic shifts, NCLB, violence, war, and the proliferation of media and technology.
The contributors have explored these competing interests and have analyzed the problems and possibilities of rural people having to rethink their entire ways of living, being, and educating their children. We hope that the analyses in this collection suggest the closely entwined fates of rural schools and communities as well as the multiple ways in which place matters.
Place emerges not as a fixed, bounded, authentic site but as an articulation of social relations and cultural and political practices that are paradoxical, provisional, and constantly in the process of becoming. Rural places are dynamic and fluid, and as such are inseparable from broader networks of power and globalization; thus the twenty-first century will almost certainly pose new challenges for rural schools and communities. Global climate change, environmental degradation, peak oil, as well as new economic and demographic shifts, will all have significant, if as yet not completely known, effects on rural well-being Klare ; Speth We offer these chapters not as blueprints for how to respond to these challenges, but as evidence of the complexity and resiliency of rural people and places, and what that might mean for the practice and meaning of education—and alternatives for living—as we forge our way into this new century.
