Peace School - We read Chapter 6 in the Book of Revelation. We'll reflect on what it means to be a church dedicated to Jesus while being immersed in a life within an empire. In chapter 6 we read a scene of worship. Do people experiencing direct violence and persecution have a different kind of worship service? Today, are people around the world experience violence similar to the violence in Revelation?
Read - This year, as we consider the Book of Revelation, each JYF youth is encouraged to read the other "Johannine" parts of the Bible. The Gospel of John as well as the three Epistles - 1, 2, 3rd John. This week, continuing reading 3 chapters a week.
For this week, read John 16-18. Please bring any questions and insights to our conversation of Revelation each Sunday!
Pray - There are many resources for learning and deepening your spiritual practice of prayer. One of the simplest is reciting the LORD's Prayer, memorizing it, and thinking through how/whether each phrase is part of your weekly and daily living. The New Zealand version is copied below.
Serve - Each week, consider one specific way you are/will serve God. Below is a video about our project with DenUM on the 22nd. Please consider donating a Thanksgiving Food Basket one of the next four Sundays.
