Ever had a question that you’ve never heard discussed? Well now’s your chance. Get your group to all write down three questions each on separate scraps of paper. You can vary the number based on the size of your group. Fold the pieces up and throw them all in a hat. Take it in turns to draw out a question and spend ten minutes discussing it.
You could limit the topic if you like, ie. questions about prayer, science, doctrine and so on or you could take the plunge and allow absolutely anything. This is a good way of finding out the kinds of issues your group is interested in and can also act as a kind of ice breaker with people who don’t know each other too well or perhaps don’t often contribute to discussions.
Classic examples of questions might include:
- If evolution were true why would it disprove God as the creator of the universe?
- Did God die on the cross?
- How do you know God is real?
- What’s happening when you see people being ‘slain in the Holy Spirit’?
- Who’s the king of the jungle?
I’m sure you can think of plenty more and no doubt your group will surprise you with what they come up with.
