Admittedly, the story of the Jonas Brothers breaking up as a band is probably not on the same level as say, conflicts between Democrats and Republicans in Congress, or reconciliation between Israel and Pakistan (at least not for anyone over 12). However, there is at least one insight in this article that will be helpful as you begin your study of “The Big Picture.” Summarize the following story from USA Today: Jonas Brothers Explain Band Breakup. Then, ask some of the following questions:
- Have you ever been in a conflict with a family member in which the healthy step was to remember you were “family first?”
- When was a time you’ve stopped working on a project together for the sake of preserving or restoring a relationship?
- If you have a daughter that is inconsolable over the Jonas Brothers breakup, how could you help her understand “The Big Picture” behind the decision the brothers have made?
We want to hear from you! What are some other current events, not related to boy bands, that you can use to explore the truths of this session?
