FORMA, always a wealth of information, has put forward resources that can be used to discuss issues like Ferguson with children and youth in your faith community.
Written and compiled by Danielle Dowd, the diocesan youth missioner in the Diocese of Missouri (where Ferguson is located), she points out:
We may feel intimidated by these discussions. We may feel inadequate to lead them. But our youth need a safe space to tell their stories and process their feelings. They need us to come forth as servant leaders – leaders who are ready to cry with them, to struggle alongside them, to listen to them. Many of the questions that come along with these discussions do not have easy answers. Enter into them anyway.
The resources are here.
