Yesterday morning we recapped Mark Yaconelli's talk from the first day of Shift 2008. Thanks to those of you who have left comments on this post, along with the reviews of the sessions with Brian McLaren and Shane Claiborne. During his session Mark spoke passionately and with a good dose of humor about some of the unglamorous aspects of serving in student ministries. And one point he bemoaned watching the "good youth groups" at summer camp walking around with their Bibles while his students were "lighting marijuana cigarettes and sneaking off to the bushes."

Leading up to this conference the Shift organizers posted a number of podcast interviews with some of the folks who are speaking this week. Yesterday, immediately following his session, we got Mark Yaconelli in the studio to ask some follow-up questions. Take a listen.
