Getting to know your family

4 Mar

We are currently running a series with one of our youth small group called ‘Getting to know your family.’ Each week we have been having a member of our church congregation come along and share their life story and then have allowed the young people to ask them questions about anything they like. It’s a really simple idea but it has been really amazing to hear about these peoples lives and then answering questions openly and honestly about doubts, guidance, faith and parenting. Each person so far have started by saying how uninteresting their journey has been but I honestly can say I have rarely seen this group so captivated. I have found each persons story exciting and I love the fact that on the whole their lives have been normal and filled with highs and lows, joys and struggles. This is another small simple thing that we are doing to try and keep building cross generational links within our church.
