Research suggests that a majority of Christian youth doubt their faith, but few ever talk about it. They are often left on their own struggling with religious doubt.
Youth ministers, clergy, seminarians and laity are invited to the first Youth Ministry Celebration Day, sponsored by CDSP and the Diocese of California. Well known speaker, Andrew Zirschky, will present his research and offer suggestions for using doubt to engage youth, followed by a panel discussion of local youth ministry leaders.
Take 20-30 minutes out of your busy schedule for some self-care and join us. There will be Reiki, healing touch, shamanic healing, and opportunities for meditation to be offered for students, faculty and staff of the GTU and the surrounding community. Be kind to yourself!
To be held 7-9pm in Mudd 100, Pacific School of Religion, 1798 Scenic Ave., Berkeley
