Who is God? Who Am I? Who Are We Together? These are the three questions that students participating in the Three Simple Questions for Youth six-week study will discuss and wrestle with. Answering these three questions has a big impact on what you believe, how you live, and how you relate to other people. The answers are not simple, but they do lead to a better understanding of what it means to be a Christian. Each chapter concludes with a simple spiritual practice to help youth remember and respond to what they have read, followed by a prayer.
In the midst of a world torn apart by division, anger, hatred, and violencewhich have become contagious and even invaded the churchthese three simple questions can help to redirect us back to a path of faithfulness to Jesus Christ, helping us to live more Christ-like lives.
In three brief and engaging chapters, youth will gain new understanding of who this God of love is, who we are as sons or daughters of this God, and who we are as members of the whole human family and the living body of Christ in the world. In the process, they will discover the greatness and goodness of God, the value of every beloved child of God, and the impact we can have in the world when we live as Jesus lived.
Each chapter concludes with a simple spiritual practice to help youth remember and respond to what they have read, followed by a prayer.
