Activity time: 5 minutes

  • 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:

Can your physical self affect the way the nonphysical part of you feels?

Extend discussion with these additional questions:

  • If you are really starving or if you have stomach flu, how could that change the way your mind thinks? The way your spirit feels? Does that mean your soul is changed, too?
  • How could a long-term physical illness affect your soul?
