And young adults, perhaps more than middle or older adults, recognized that their future was profoundly affected.Across the country, immediate reaction on campuses was varied as demonstrations for peace mingled with an all-out willingness to go to war. Over the next week, walk-in traffic doubled at campus counseling centers.The Sunday After Tuesday gives readers an opportunity to step onto a number of college campuses and listen in as chaplains, ministers, pastors, and priests first began to address the global issues that rose to crisis proportions on September 11, 2001. These homilies and sermons, written in the context of September 11, are directed to 18- to 22-year-olds and attempt to relate the Christian faith to the events of the week. They offer food for thought and discussion and a sense of being there with a generation that was just beginning to realize they might pay the ultimate price as world events unfold.A 16-page leaders guide includes plans for a 12-session study, with discussion guide.
