Thank you for the gift of young people! You’ve given them energy, joy, insights, questions and love to share in ways that other generations can’t. So open my eyes and my heart to see them and value their contributions to the world. Use Community United Methodist Church (and that means ME!) to offer them care and compassion. Help us to “be the village” they need for support and spiritual growth. Prompt me to identify, validate and cheer on the potential you’ve placed within each one of them. This I pray in the name of Jesus, who drew the children to his side.
