Ask your children/youth: I wonder, what your expectations are this Christmas and New Year?
It’s always good to gauge the expectations the next generation has at this time. Perhaps they notice things you may not.
- It could be as simple as asking a random number of kids/youth this question.
- You could also challenge other adults to ask this question and listen (not debate).
- If you want to get creative, record a session (with guardian’s permission) and share it with the rest of the congregation.
It may help inform your church’s leadership of the hopes (and possible anxieties) your kids/youth are facing.
