Spiritual Practices in Youth Ministry

Ways of Honoring the Body, Yolanda Smith – Video and Discussion Outline

Rev. Dr. Yolanda Smith talks about ways youth can honor the body.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. Is the laying on of hands a part of our tradition? How might we teach this ancient spiritual practice to our young people?
  2. How might we cultivate gratitude for our bodies, especially in the tender time that is adolescence?
  3. Is dance a form of embodied worship that we often use? If it is not, what would it look like to try this?
