Doug Jones is offering a youth ministry resource unlike any I’ve ever offered or linked to here at Life in Student Ministry. It’s called A Journey with Jesus. What’s unique about this journey is that it’s not just a “sit-down and talk” Bible study. It’s an experience of Jesus’ life broken up into 13 scenes/stations, each interactive and meditative. Here’s a little bit of his summary:
It is an active process where I envision groups physically walking through the “scenes” in a manner similar to the Stations of the Cross. It is meant to be done with each station lasting on average of no more than 5 minutes so that you can complete the experience in a little more than an hour or take a bit more time and complete it in two 35-40 minute sessions (you could divide it fairly neatly between the “Public Teaching of Jesus” and “The Lord’s Supper”). You could also use this effectively on a retreat where you were teaching on the life of Jesus.
Visit Doug’s website to read more about it and get the free download. While you’re there, post a quick comment saying thanks for his generosity in sharing this so freely with all of us.
Also, be sure to plug his resource on PlugRug.
