Make a meditative moment for yourself. Relax. Take several deep breaths. Reflect on today's Big Question: "What are we?" How many ways might you answer that question? Consider how sixth graders might approach the question. "We" to a sixth grader may mean a group of friends; some may be troubled by being left outside some groups. Perhaps you can help them recognize your congregation as a place where all who come are accepted as part of "we."
Smile in the knowledge that simply joining youth in their search of life's mysteries will be good and rewarding today.
