Questions for all Youth Groups:

  1. It is widely believed that youth are passionate. What kinds of passion leads young people to take action? And what passion and emotional experiences lead them to stay?  How can the church be a safe space for these emotions, when the culture continually deems them unsafe?
  2. What words and experiences are sacred for our people of color, who are oppressed in this culture in a myriad of ways? How can we youth leaders be mindful of this, both pastorally and programmatically?
