- Talk to your youth about the 8 practices of welcoming and how they might use them in their visit.
- Remind youth to bring an offering. We recommend an amount of $2.00-$5.00.
- Remind the youth about dress requirements: neat and clean.
- Ask your youth to share their favorite part of the visit.
- Reflect with them on your own experiences with and understanding of Christianity. Be sure to talk about how your understanding and attitudes have changed over the years. Be sure to model a gracious spirit and talk about what you appreciate about Christianity.
- Carve out meditative time to watch and reflect on this Christian video from The Art of Examen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7-0DAMLZr0. Use the questions lifted up in the video for further meditation throughout the week: How has your sense of purpose overtaken your prioritization of people? Have you become too important to be “interruptible”? Too busy to entertain angels unaware?
