Ministering to Youth in the Midst of Suffering, Mary Elizabeth Moore – Video and Discussion Questions
Dr. Mary Elizabeth Moore addresses how to minister to youth in the midst of suffering.
Questions for Discussion:
How does it feel to consider yourself a “mediator of the holy” for youth?
When youth bring up experiences of pain and suffering (such as bullying, death, loneliness, or simply a greater awareness of the world around them), how do we respond? What spaces do our young people have in which to share these things?
What does it mean to respect the dignity of young people, and what does that look like in our church?
If hope is an “active decision,” as Moore claims, how can we foster that decision in our young people’s lives?
