You do not have to be around youth ministry very long before realizing that youth deal with all kinds of hurt. It might be from family dynamics, cultural pressures, bumps along the road to self-discovery, and friends hurting friends. Not to mention a soul that is hurt making sense of the faith they are trying to discover.
It is a good idea to periodically offer sacred spaces for healing of the youth group. This is a simple youth healing service to help you give such a space.
Instructions are simple, get some anointed oil for healing (ask the pastor), a few candles, a circular seated setting, have a little homily on healing to share, and instructions on anointing each other with the oil. Then just give copies to youth, assign scripture readers and you are ready. From there just let what happens happen.
