Last week we started Mockingjay Part 1 in the Hunger Games Trilogy, Looking at how identity is “made”. Katniss struggled with finding her identity in the midst of the chaos created by her rescue and the impending civil war between the Capitol and the Districts. This week we will continue the story as Katniss continues to struggle with her role as the Mockingjay. "Propo" videos between the Capitol and the Districts become a focus point and start to bring the reality of being the Mockingjay and what it means to the people. Katniss and Peeta become the vocal influence for their "sides". Katniss starts to doubt her commitment to the Districts as well as Peeta's commitment to the Capitol. We end the session with a clip form the movie showing a group of people running toward the dam, which provides the Capitol with electricity, and blowing it up, leaving the Capitol dark.

4. What makes something a good or bad influence on how we feel about our identity?
5. Read Ephesians 2:10
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Do you find it easy or hard to believe God's opinion about yourself? Why or why not?
