Youth Pilgrimage to DC
Respecting the Dignity of Every Human Being. Youth Pilgrimage 2022.
We had planned to take youth to General Convention. When that closed to visitors, we went to DC instead. Walking tour of the National Mall. War Memorials. The step of the I Have a Dream Speech. FDR memorial (accessible to all) and MLK "Out of a mountain of despair, a stone of hope" memorial. Museum of African American History and Culture. That was just Thursday. Then Friday, we spent half a day with an amazing ministry: S.O.M.E. - So Others Might Eat, plus have health care, addiction and mental health treatment, job training, and affordable housing. We toured the US Botanical Garden (youth choice). And we saw the Aaron Sorkin production of To Kill a Mockingbird, with Richard Thomas, much better than the original. Plus great discussions while walking and on the Metro about what respecting human dignity does and does not look like. Visits to the Museum of the American Indian and the Holocaust Memorial. Worship with Washington National Cathedral. A busy trip with lots to think about, learn, and fun!
Youth EYC Summer Kick-Off!
