 Philosophy of Religion » Arguments for the Existence of God 

Starting a study with my middle schoolers that is based on Christian Apologetics. Last night I gave each of them a card with some typical non-christian beliefs (atheist, agnostic, new age...) and had them act out that role while the others in the group tried to witness to them. I gave them a few minutes with each to try on their own, then gave them a short example of where to start a discussion from a reasoning point of view.  I'm not entirely sure how well the point got across. However, it did show them how unprepared they are to defend their faith.

This was just an introduction to what will be at least a 13 week study that addresses the 13 Most Common Questions About God. I have been doing a lot of reading and studying to prepare for this class. It will be very interesting to see how these kids grow over the next few months. I know I have a much firmer grasp on the reasoning behind my faith.

Back again

Where to begin... I continue to learn and grow in my faith. This has led me to taking on several tasks. A mission trip to VA last year and one to NOLA this year. Teaching adult sunday school for almost a year now, hard to believe. The latest has been taking on the middle school youth bible study on Wednesday nights with Karen assisting me.

Outside of reading my bible I've also read Dante's Devine Comedy, Crazy Love by Francis Chan(great book, highly recommend), and a good bit on Christian Apologetics.

Probably a good thing I've been doing all this reading, 11-14 year olds can ask some pretty tough questions. In order to both help clarify my thoughts and share my studies I decided it would be good to resume posting here.

All constructive comments are most welcome.
