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.
