Gospel Journey Maui Week 7 Updates

7 May

Dear Parents,

This week we will be watching GOSPEL Journey Maui episode 7, What happens after we die? During our discussion time, we’ll be exploring the most widely accepted possibilities of extinction, reincarnation, and resurrection. The main point of our lesson time will be that Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, combined with the Judgment Day passage in Revelation 20:11-15, teaches that all people will one day be resurrected from the dead to face judgment and then their eternal destiny in either heaven or hell.

Here are a few suggested parent/teen activities you might consider using as a springboard to deeper spiritual conversation on this challenging topic:
• Visit a cemetery and read the various epitaphs. Talk about how you would like to be remembered and how that might play into what happens on Judgment Day.
• Take the ‘what age will you die’ quiz found at this website: http://www.blogthings.com/whatagewillyoudiequiz/. Talk about how this can change your perspective on life and Judgment Day.

Engaging your teen in spiritual conversation will help them work through questions they may have and will help to ground them in their Christian faith. So set aside some time this week to explore a topic we all wrestle with from time to time.

Your youth leader,
