Stages of Discernment with Youth, David White – Video and Discussion Outline

Rev. Dr. David White talks about the stages of discernment with youth.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. Of the four movements—listening, understanding, remembering/dreaming, and acting—where are we strongest in our youth programming?
  2. How might we use historic Christian practices, like the examen, or Bible study, to help youth engage in vocational discernment?
  3. What implications might this work have for discernment as far as issues like racism are concerned?
  4. How might we mobilize our youth, or encourage them to self-mobilize?
