Responding to Our Youth in Crisis
“God is calling us to get brave. To look our young people in the eye, and with dedication, love, and commitment, begin to tell the truth as best we can. The truth about God in Jesus. The truth about the joys and sorrows of living in relationship. The truth about hard work and sacrifice. The truth about love.” – Amanda Millay Hughes
Those who seek and serve Christ among teenagers in the Episcopal Church are not surprised by the recent headlines about youth and mental health. We see our youth, and we don’t see them, everywhere. We long for their wellness. There are several paths we can take into this conversation, as we pray about how and where we are equipped to get involved. As educators deeply involved in Youth Ministry across the Episcopal Church for over 25 years, we feel obligated to reach out and encourage you to trust that you can make a difference. To remind you of help available for your leaders, and provide a starter-list of good online resources, church-based and other, who can also guide and empower a response (see below). In them you will find research about the current status of youth and find direction for providing care in your unique parish or diocesan situation.
