Let Hope In, Session 6 (Hope Shared): Intro Option for Boomers

To introduce the Point of today’s session, “After finding hope in Christ, we must share it with others,” lead group members to call out words which would describe “The wrong way to share your faith” If you have a whiteboard, write down their responses.

Share this humorous video, “Real Christians of Genius.” If you don’t see the video below, click here to watch on You Tube.

  • After watching this, is there anything else you would add to our list of “The wrong way to share your faith?”
  • The Point of today’s session emphasizes sharing the hope we have in Christ. When we picture stereotypes of street preachers and door-to-door evangelists, is hope always what is emphasized? Why or why not?
  • Have stereotypes such as this sometimes kept you from saying anything about your faith to others? In what way?

Transition into the session by inviting group members to pay close attention to what Peter and John actually shared with the lame man in Acts 3:1-10.

We want to hear from you! How will you communicate the truths of this session with the Boomers in your group?

    This was an ongoing argument that I had with my late Brother, who stood on street corners and threatened people they were going to Hell and I would always defend that he was scaring people away instead of inviting them in. Don’t get me wrong, I know he’s in heaven and that he accepted Christ. he and I just weren’t on the same page as far a sharing our beliefs. He knew the bible, just got false doctrine in prison. The other thing I wanted to say regarding the video clip is I think it’s okay to wear Christian T-Shirts and Food for thought hats and signs, I take a hit for the good team quite often doing that,, but it’s just as importoant to walk the talk and set an example with your life, how you act. I am not a good cold call salesperson, can’t even do it for my own business, because I’m a firm believer in treating others the way I like to be treated. The reason I wear all my crazy hats and visors and t-shirts is to have the other person initiate the conversation. e.g. My facebook profile pic has the word “UGLY” on my visor and when people ask me why I think I’m ugly, I tell them it stands for “Understand God Loves You” I love acronyms and Food for thought type messages to help me share and don’t think their is anything wrong with that, as long as it serves the purpose and you walk the talk. “Crasy Kim” (Crazy for Christ, Looney for the Lord, and Physcho for my Savior)
