Tapestry of Faith: Heeding the Call: A Program on Justicemaking for Junior High School Youth

Spiritual Preparation

Take a few moments to relive joyful moments in your life. What events have brought you joy? Has your social justice work ever brought you joy? Were you able to share the joy? Joy seems to grow exponentially when shared. Consider how joy is expressed and shared by youth in your community. What does youthful exuberance look like in your congregation? Is youthful joy welcomed and celebrated? Maybe one or more of these questions will inspire you as you encounter the intersection of joy and justice.
