On June 21, 44 people from 21 churches and parachurch organizations participated in the Next Generation quarterly meeting, where they learned about effective ways adults can facilitate conversations with children and youth to help them process and make sense of tragic events. The way supportive adults respond can help calm fears, create a supportive environment, instill hope and foster healing.
Practical tools were provided that adults can use to address this topic in developmentally appropriate ways and convey the hope and trust we have in God.
