Week of 9/2 Youth Update

Weekly Highlights:

Wednesday Night Youth Group

Youth group starts up on Wednesday, September 11th, at 6:30 pm in Sweetland Hall! Nina and I are super excited to get the year started and to see all of you! More details to come on some very exciting Wednesday night youth group opportunities.

Dinner: 6:30 — 7:00 pm, Sweetland Hall

Youth Group: 7:00 — 8:30 pm, Jr. & Sr. High Rooms

Our Whole Lives (O.W.L.)

Growing up in a very conservative church meant that no one ever talked to me about sex — except that it was bad and only appropriate in certain kinds of relationships in the context of marriage.

Turns out that wasn’t particularly helpful.

With O.W.L., we are offering a holistic, sex positive, and healthy approach grounded in the theological commitment that sexuality is a critical part of who we are and that we have a responsibility to make safe and informed choices.

So what is O.W.L.?

Our Whole Lives is a comprehensive and progressive approach to sexuality education that explores the totality of human sexuality in a developmentally appropriate manner in the context of our faith as Episcopalians. It not only addresses the basics of sexual health and reproduction, but also encompasses sensuality, intimacy, sexual identity, and sexualization, and does so rooted in the assumptions that all persons are sexual, that sexuality is a good part of the human experience, that sexuality includes much more than sexual behaviors, and many other important values explored throughout the entire course of the program.

A key part of this program is parent commitment — O.W.L. assumes that parents are the primary sexual educators for their children, so our primary role is to provide a safe, exploratory space for students to ask questions and learn while also providing opportunities for parents to connect with their children about what is discussed in our sessions.

To that end, if you’re interested in signing your students up, we require that all parents/guardians attend a mandatory orientation session on Sunday, September 22nd from 6 till 8:00 pm. Dinner will be included.

O.W.L. is being offered in the following format:

A 7th/8th grade class, spanning 24 sessions (see calendar here) — you can register by clicking here.

A 10th — 12th grade class, spanning 24 sessions (see calendar here) — you can register by clicking here.

There will be a fee for O.W.L., but we are still working on those details — scholarships, full and partial will be available.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me or Nina if you have any questions.

Seekers

Seekers is our youth confirmation program and is open to all senior high students, although traditionally it is our 9th grade students who make up the majority of the class. Seekers runs from October till May, and is a powerful space to discern whether or not confirmation is right for you. The most important part of Seekers is that the confirmation decision is up to each individual participant, not their parents, friends, or youth staff.

To that end, we make sure to provide a space where youth can challenge their own faith and the faith of our community in a sincere and honest way.

We’ll hold an informational session for Seekers and parents on Sunday, September 22nd, at 1 pm in the Learning Center. Lunch will be provided. Please click here to sign up.

Additionally, please click here to see the calendar for the year.

Acolytes

Acolyting is one of my favorite things about our youth program — it’s a once a month, one service commitment that offers:

  • the opportunity to learn more about the church

  • to serve communion

  • to grow leadership skills

  • to gain valuable community service hours

  • enjoy a delicious donut

  • and most importantly, spend time with your friends

Right now, our teams need help! We’d love for you to join one of our acolyte teams…maybe you’re afraid of the commitment? We understand — come check us out on Acolyte training day (Saturday, September 14th from noon till 4 pm) and see if it’s a good fit for you.

But seriously, we need you! If you’ve been on the fence about acolyting, now’s the time to jump in and try it on.

Not So Bored Game Night

Our monthly Not So Bored Game Night will on Friday, September 13th, from 6 till 9:30 pm in Sweetland Hall. All students in grades 6 - 12 are welcome — light refreshments will be provided.

Jesus is not interested in your personal salvation*

Comment

Jesus is not interested in your personal salvation*

I don’t really think that Jesus has ever really been interested in your personal salvation.

But perhaps I should clarify.

I don’t think that Jesus is interested in your personal salvation as it relates to heaven or being saved. This is largely a function of the contemporary American (evangelical) church.

Jurgen Moltmann writes convincingly that Jesus’ historical experience (vis a vis the cross) is not the moment of the reconciliation of all things. There is no moment in time where we could not already be reconciled to God.

The event of the cross, for Christians, functions as a signal marker that we already find the fullness of our being in the divinity in whom we move and have our being. But this act, couched in the paradigmatic theology of Christian faith, is not just for Christians.

The great sin of the evangelical church today is its subversion of the community-saving message of Jesus into the heresy of an individualistic, personal salvation of becoming saved.

It is this interpretive perversion that allows self-proclaimed Christian leaders the theological framework to align themselves with power that oppresses and excludes.

It is not enough, then, to say that Jesus would condemn the xenophobic race-baiting so eagerly displayed by many of our political and so-called religious leaders today.

Jesus would.

Rather, what we must see is that Jesus is the very refugee being denied entry.

Ultimately, Christian faith, if it does anything at all, expands the horizon of God’s embrace. And it does not do this alone. The world’s great spiritual teachers move us to the truth of an existential reality where everything, and everyone, is radically reconciled and included.

Our salvation, then, is not a movement to personal glorification, individualism, and greed — rather, it is a process whereby we understand that we are deeply bound together with everyone else, and that it matters how we treat those whom we are tempted to marginalize and oppress.

This is the theological framework that drives our work with young people at All Saints.

It is a framework that explores the unfathomable depth of God’s love for all people — a framework that helps structure a reality where the work of helping one another and embracing our strength in community becomes the defining way in which we answer the complex and numerous problems facing our world today.

So as we pull our gaze away from the desire to make salvation all about ourselves, let us begin to re-engage the complex and deep reality of a model of faith that strives to make communities, not just individuals, whole.
