From time to time I post a youth ministry question that I’ve received and leave it to you, the MTDB youth ministry community, to answer it. This is a timely one from a youth worker in Texas. We don’t do much about this issue in our youth group – but I pointed them to this post, hoping you would chime in with wisdom and best practices. Go!
QUESTION: I have a question for you. Today I have been watching all of the news about the earthquake in Japan. It is all over the news, radio, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter so i know that it will be on the minds of our young people. What are some ways that you would recommend using natural disasters and any huge disaster as a teaching moment for young people?
