Church of England tells young people to listen to God for careers advice

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Anyone concerned about a perceived lack of direction in the youth of today can rest assured that this problem will be solved by the end of this week, when churches across the UK hold Vocations Sunday 2008.

The Church of England has come up with a five-session course entitled 'Get a Life!', aimed at encouraging 13-18 year-olds to think about their future career paths. Youngsters will be urged to listen to God's voice in choosing their careers, and the course will employ "fun activities, meaningful exercises, biblical parallels and specially written prayers to give young people a stronger understanding of their gifts and passions."

With all this in mind, I'm putting my neck on the line and predicting that unemployment in Britain will have disappeared by 2018.
