The Bucket List

I watched The Bucket List last night...very good movie with lots of interesting topics for discussion. For example: You could probably use this as an alternative clip for my 101 things to do before you die talk

Drillbit Taylor - bullying video clip idea

I watched Drillbit Taylor last night. The film is about two boys trying to cope with bullying. There are several scenes that you could use from the film to stimulate a discussion. Unfortunately I had to return the DVD so I didn't write down the chapters. However here are some I recall:
There are many other scenes you could use...

This Ability Rock Solid video clip

We did the This Ability session from Rock Solid last week. Here's my video clip suggestion...School of Rock chapter 5 – 6. In this clip Jack Black has just discovered that the students can play instruments. As a result he starts the new class project 'rock band'. The clip shows that we all have different abilities and we all have a role to play. I finished the clip just at the point where they go to lunch.

Pass the parcel

This idea is based on something I saw during a service at Christ Church and I thought it might work with our youth group...and I think it did.

You will need a Bible verse, some sweets, wrapping paper, sellotape and some music.

Print out the Bible verse on paper that's a different colour to the wrapping paper. When you have done that, cut out the individual words that make up the verse.

Now, wrap up the sweets, just like you would in pass the parcel. Remember to include some of the words from the Bible verse in each layer.

So....get your group together for a game of pass the parcel. Tell them to collect any words they find. At the end, ask them to try and put the words together into a sentence.

When they have done that, briefly discus the verse. We used Romans 12:10 "Love each other like brothers and sisters. Give each other more honour than you want for yourselves."
