Wednesdays are long days - hours wise - but what fun to laugh and engage with youth early in the morning and late in the day. They ask great questions, have enthusiasm and energy galore - although sometimes it seems a little too much late in the day during confirmation class. It is then that I wonder if anything I am saying is getting through. Do they hear or learn? Does what I say matter?
So tonight, as we ended class and gathered in a circle to pray, these words touched my heart deeply as prayed by one of the youth: “thank you for a safe place to ask questions.”
Wow!!! What more can one hope for than for youth to know they have a safe place to ask any and all questions! Please, dear God, help that always to be the case!!
