As you prepare to facilitate this workshop, ask yourself the key questions:
- Who or what am I afraid of?
- What is courage?
- What helps me be brave?
Reflect on how you might have answered these questions as an eight-year-old child, a fourteen year old youth, or a young adult making your way in the world. Envision the way you would like to respond to the third question when you are an elder, looking back on your life. Think about people of different ages and life stages in your congregation, and celebrate the gifts each brings to your faith community.
