It’s commencement season — a time of endings and beginnings. Check out this very musical graduation speech from Belmont University President Robert Speech. Share the video with young adults and ask them what musical lyrics come to mind when they think of graduation.

If you have graduates in your young adult ministry group, plan a celebration for them. You might write your own commencement speech (like the one in the video) to share. If you don’t, you might take some time to talk about young adults’ college memories or talk about how young adults’ faith has grown or changed since the college days.
