There’s honor in each of us being light bearers to another, especially to the ones who might be struggling to find a reason to live. As Christians, we’re meant to bear the light of God’s love to others. As we learn to flow in partnership with God’s Spirit, we can gain a better realization of how every interaction with another person can become life-giving bridge of hope.
A conversation, phone call, meeting for coffee, an invitation for a walk, a small text, or taking a class together, are just some of the small gestures of significant value. The rewards of building a mutual bridge of connection are great and we all lose when just one youth choose to believe they are powerless to change.
A. Learn how to connect with a variety of youth within your community in practical ways to build value and self-worth.
B. Gain new perspectives through the real story in the video called, “AFTERMATH’ and where you can make a difference in someone’s life.
C. Acquire a broader recognition of patterns of isolation and ways to become a bridge to relationships through building trust and worthiness.
D. Engage in developing active listening skills and when to recommend resources to ensure safe outcomes.
