This week we continued our The Hunger Games: Catching Fire study. Throughout the movie, the theme of hope is used in various places. We will focus on this theme in the coming weeks using the same Bible verse each week and asking different questions to unpack the ideas. Use the below blog post as a way to continue the conversation at home. Use all of the sections, or just a couple, it's up to you, to decide how your family uses this resource.
Share a high or low from the past week. Everything from having a good test grade, or achieving a goal as highs to missing a class, or missing a meeting as lows. Use this time to get caught up with what is going on in each others lives, sharing as much or as little as you choose.
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
When evildoers assail me
to devour my flesh--
my adversaries and foes--
they shall stumble and fall.
Though an army encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear;
though war rise up against me,
yet I will be confident.
When you hear the "Lord is my light and salvation", what does this bring to your mind? Or when you hear "Lord is the stronghold of my life"? How do you struggle to understand this or remember this each day? Do you believe it?
Jesus, when all is darkness and we feel our weakness and helplessness, give us the sense of Your presence, Your love, and Your strength. Help us to have perfect trust in Your protecting love and strengthening power, so that nothing may frighten or worry us, for, living close to You, we shall see Your hand, Your purpose, Your will through all things. AMEN.
(Name), remember you are a child of God. (Mark each others foreheads with the sign of the cross from your baptism.)
