As adults we often advocate for children and the rights of generations to come, but how often do we actually listen to younger people themselves?
This service we’ve invited two teenagers to share their insights around, “What matters to you right now?”
Laura Belfrage is a Weekly Service member. On the verge of leaving Year 12, she is articulate in defining what’s alive for her as she navigates the world with an increasing sense of curiosity. She is lead by the big questions of how to be and what to do with her life as she comes of age.
Finn Darlington is the son of another Weekly Service member. As he heads into Year 9 in 2020, he is starting to reflect on some big questions around his passions and the qualities he wishes to embody.
There is an open invitation for young people especially to attend this service. This may mean listening, participating in the discussion, or sharing something creative with the audience. As this service is focused on ‘voices of the future’, we encourage adults to attend with an intention of active listening.
We will be carefully facilitating the space with respect and mindfulness of younger attendees. However, if you’re bringing your child, please keep in mind that a variety of topics relevant to teenagers may arise throughout the service.
The Weekly Service is a crafted experience of storytelling, reflection, discussion, music and tea, which is designed to help us slow down and reconnect. This week's service is curated by Louise Arbanas and Jeremy Gay.
