On Wednesday, I saw two of the women from my congregation who my students recently visited during my youth ministry’s interviews with the saints. Both spoke enthusiastically about how much they enjoyed their conversation with our young people. Perhaps more remarkably, in the days since then, I’ve heard from our teens just how much they, too, enjoyed these conversations and learned from them.
One reason why these interviews were so meaningful is because students asked our saints great questions, written by our student leaders. Here they are:
- A blessing for youth leaders nurturing faith beyond youth group
- 8 ways to help mission teams conclude more than “poor people are happy”
- The fantasy youth ministry candidate
- What students need most when they’re stuck spiritually
- The tearing of the curtain
- How do you not hate them?
- Messy Ashes
- What it means to be a Bradbury
- The (false) unity of 9-12
- Notes from the pandemic: The plight of young (unvaccinated) children & their parents
