September Faith Conversation
1. Opening: If you could be anyone in the world now, or if you could switch places with someone, who would it be? Why?
Thought/Discussion: Research says that the majority of your personality is formed by the time you are 5 years of age. Do you believe that? How does your personality differ from your brother or sister? Do you think that is the way they and you were born or the way you were raised by your parents? We are in the process right now of forming our identity. How do we find out what that identity is? Discuss.
Bible Verse: Jeremiah 1:5 “Before you I formed you in the womb, I knew you”
2. Opening: Who is your favorite Biblical character in the Bible and why?
Thought/Discussion: It is interesting that God often times does not take the popular or strongest people to make famous in the Bible. The Disciples for example where all just normal people who felt led to make a difference. Indeed, it did because from that 12 there are now 2 billion people in the world who are Christians. They impacted the world because they did not just talk the talk but also walked the walked. Discuss. What does being a hypocrite look like and how can we avoid being one?
Bible Verse: Matt. 16:18 “I say to you, you are Peter and on this rock I will build my church.”
3. Opening: What is one of your top 3 favorite movie dramas? Not comedy but a drama or story?
Thought/Discussion: We all love a good story. And the thing is we all have a story no matter who we are. It doesn’t matter if it is a famous story like a historical figure like Abraham Lincoln or even a biblical figure like Moses, our story is important in God’s plan. Discuss examples of people you know have an important story even though there are not particularly famous or popular. (eg. Fans in the stands at football games are important because without the student body the experience on the field wouldn’t have meaning. Or, a special needs student who is an example of courage at school).
Bible Verse: Jeremiah 29:11 “I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope”.
