From the UUA Web site:
Betty Jeanne Rueters-Ward gave the Young Adult Voice response. She talked about how capable youth leadership really can be, and how it should not be taken for granted.
Groups should not let themselves by compartmentalized but should instead be seen as central to our faith movement. Adults do play a critical and necessary role in developing youth leadership.
She added, "I have witnessed how compartmentalization can damage our movement. Our congregation should be dependent upon the intergenerational process...we are ALL lifelong teachers and learners."
"To the adults in the audience: I wish for you that you can have young people in your lives to mentor/partner you, as well as vice versa."
