DOUBT IT: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON DOUBT
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: OUR QUESTIONS DON’T ALWAYS GET ANSWERED
We were all designed to ask questions. As toddlers, we constantly asked, “Why?” But as we get older, asking too many questions is often discouraged — especially when those questions are about our faith. But in this 4-week series, we’ll talk about how having questions (and even doubts) about God might not be as scary or as shameful as we thought, because you’re not alone in your questions, God doesn’t shame us for our questions, our questions don’t always get answered, and Godly people can help us with our questions.
We know having conversations with teenagers about their doubts and questions can be scary, but these conversations are so vital and good! Remember this:
“Doubt isn’t toxic to faith; unexpressed doubt is.”
— Kara Powell
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
