Good morning friends!
This past week we finished up talking about whether or not the Bible contradicts itself and began to ask the question "Can I be a Christian and believe in evolution?" This next topic has a lot of potential to stir up some deeply held beliefs, and the purpose of the curriculum is to prepare students for confrontation in the real world. We aim to have a healthy discussion that fosters mutual understanding throughout. This would be an awesome opportunity to talk with your student about what you believe and why! They have been encouraged to talk to an adult in their life that they respect, and I think you might be surprised to hear what they think!
In Youth group we spent the last week of Faith in and Anxious World talking about how we were designed for community, both with God and with each other. Kevin McCleery lead us through Jesus feeding the 5000 and focused on how Jesus didn't feed them by Himself, but he also didn't leave the disciples to do it alone either. We ended our time by breaking bread with one another and stressing the importance of a good community.
This is also a good time to mention that we are going to be starting our In God's Image curriculum this next week! We hope to have three weeks of that curriculum before spring break and a small insert about what it means to be Reformed before we take off for the Summer!
Thanks for stopping by as usual!!
Two relatively heavy topics this past week, but both conversations went well. Sunday school continued to address apparent contradictions within scripture and how we reconcile them as believers. We are trying to dive into this question well, but I know that students are anxious to move on to some more culturally significant topics as well. We hope to finish up this question next week!
We had the pleasure of hearing from Nancy Mccleery in youth group on the topic of depression and how to deal with it. We encouraged students to be present to those around them and to correctly asses their feelings and seek help if necessary.
We hope to finish up Faith in and Anxious world next week and keep pushing through "Can I ask That" in Sunday school!
