Had a coffee in 'De Tijd' with Tim Cerny, the new youth networks coordinator of Hope for Europe. Hope for Europe is an emerging network of networks (I know, this is getting complicated) initiated by YWAM's European director Jeff Fountain that aims to bring godly transformation in different spheres of influence in our continent. A crazy vision, so I guess it's from God. ;-) Tim also works with Foolish Things, YWAM Amsterdam's outreach to young people and the artistic community. We talked about God's work among the emerging generation in Europe, and some of the tensions I described in my earlier posting and article titled 'The hearts of the children and the forms of the fathers'. It's good to see new friendships being formed between emerging visionaries in Europe.
In the evening was in Nieuw-Vennep with Freek & Angelique van Baalen, where I challenged young people to think and act out-of-the-box (Nemo's escape from the aquarium), and told some crazy stories of what God is doing in Europe with a new generation. And as they say, "unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow."
