Year in Review

Now is the time of year when we take a look back at all that has happened in 2014 — in our personal lives and in the wider world. We’ve lost people we loved and admired. Others have fallen from grace or positions of prestige. There has been more violence and brutality, coupled with outrage, protest, and work for peace and justice. As they say in the musical “Rent” — How do you measure a year?

Here’s one such “Year in Review” timeline from CNN that you can share with young adults to kick off a conversation about the things that have effected them in 2014.

  • What notable events from 2014 stick with you?
  • Who has passed away that had an effect on your spiritual life — either famous figures or people you knew personally?
  • What are the positive images from 2014 that you can recall? What meaning have they had in your life?
