Alternate Activity 3: Challenge Question (5 minutes), Session 7: Stuff Happens

In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Optional: Newsprint, markers and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • Optional: Write the challenge question on newsprint, and post.

Description of Activity

Challenge questions guide a deeper inquiry for especially thoughtful individuals and groups. For this session, ask:

Would you want to be the only person on Earth to have a life in which nothing bad ever happened?

Spark discussion with these additional questions:

  • How would a life in which nothing bad ever happens be possible? What would it be like?
  • What would other people say? Would that matter? If others resented or criticized you, or wanted to be your friend just so they could be around you and avoid bad things that way—how would it make you feel?
