Before the Session
- Have the Bible Background Video ready to view.
- Review today’s scripture text and the session activities to help better facilitate the discussion.
- Encourage your group to listen to the Faithelement podcast ahead of the next session (Share the link via email or social media).
- If you are a fan of The Flash on the CW network, be prepared to add information from a season two episode and different views of hope. If you are not a fan, there will be plenty of information to guide you through the session.
Play the Hope video and ask some questions like:
- What does the Church’s season of Advent mean to you?
- What does your congregation typically do to celebrate Advent?
- Since the first week of Advent is traditionally a celebration of hope, what images does hope bring to mind for you?
- In what ways do you think most people in your congregation understand the Advent candles and why?
- How do our life experiences influence our view of hope?
Read 1 Thessalonians 3:6-13 then watch the Bible Background Video for this session.
