Last night was an introduction for your youth to our semester on Sacred Scripture. We talked about how God has revealed Himself to us through creation, Tradition, Sacred Scripture and finally in His Son, Jesus Christ. The Bible (Sacred Scripture) is a love story of how God has worked to bring salvation to His people. Although it was written more than 2,000 years ago, the Word of God still speaks to our lives today. It is necessary for us to read Scripture to know how God desires us to live our lives and understand His great love for us. God wants to be in a relationship with us and He has given us the Scriptures as a means to know and understand His great love. In small group, your youth was also encouraged to become more familiar and comfortable with the Bible. We will continue to break open the Scriptures throughout the rest of this semester. Your youth was encouraged to find his/ her favorite Scripture verse before next week. Take some time and ask your youth what verse he/she found and why it was important. Share your favorite Scripture verse as well. If your youth asks you the best place to start reading the Bible, point them to theGospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). Reading about Jesus’ life, mission, teachings, and ministry is a great place to begin understanding the rest of the Bible. If your youth does not already have a Bible, we would love to provide one for him/her. Just let us know. We will be using the Bible at each EDGE session, so encourage him/her to bring his/her Bible each time. Questions for the week:
  1. What did you learn about the Bible tonight?
  2. How is God your “Secret Admirer”?
  3. What does the Bible say about God’s love for you?
  4. In what ways does reading the Bible help you deepen your relationship with God?
  5. How could we as a family read Scripture together more?
We also discussed our THIRST FOR CHANGE fundraiser. LIFETEEN and EDGE parishes all over the world are collecting change next week to help the over a billion people around the world don't have access to clean water. The money we collect next Wednesday night, will go directly to build wells in Africa. More information about the THIRST FOR CHANGE program can be found at LIFETEEN.COM. See you next week!
