For the past couple weeks we’ve had a group in our new church planning a series called, “?Why.” The idea behind the series is for us to share responses to questions people have for God which start with the word, “why.”
To come up with our questions I’ve had people think about this, “If Jesus walked into the room and said you could ask him one question that starts with the word ‘why,’ what would your question be?”
We ended up with three pages of questions. Our planning group for this series came up with some questions, people at our Agape Feast came up with some questions, and I came up with about 20 questions.
If anyone would like to see the three pages of questions, share a request on the comments section of this blog. I’ll E-mail them to you.
Last night our planning group sat down and finalized the questions that we will be addressing in our series.
After some conversation the questions we developed are:
Drum roll …………………………………………………………………….
Week 1: Why doesn’t God intervene to stop suffering, especially among children?
Week 2: Why is the Bible relevant today if it was written over 2000 years ago?
Week 3: Why does one God have so many different denominations?
Week 4: Why make time for church?
The whole process was fun and could easily be adapted by churches.
We also came up with some creative marketing ideas for this series. More on this later.
