This Sunday we are confirming six youth at St. Stoic. I have asked the youth to help me plan worship. So, a few weeks ago when I read to them the list of lectionary choices, the kid who is a rocker/skater punk yelled out “Revelation! Revelation! We have to pick Revelation!” I asked him what he liked so much about Revelation, and he replied “I don’t even know what Revelation is, but it is in a song lyric by a band I really like. So I’ll probably think it’s sick.” (“Sick” is a good thing.)
Okay…Revelation it is.
The line that has grabbed me so far in my thinking is this:
“See, the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them as their God; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them;”
I’m still working out how this translates to 14-years-olds on a spiritual journey, but that is my starting place this week. What’s yours?
