|"DARE TO BE RADICAL" by Carol Duerksen and Abby Kline|
YOUTH GROUP LESSON 110
|MATERIALS AND ADVANCE PREPARATION:
• Copies of the article at the end of this lesson OR the spring 2009 issue of With Magazine.
• Place the truth and dare questions on small slips of paper and then place the slips into two separate hats or bags, one for truth and one for dare.
FOCUS AND EXPLORE:
1 Play Truth or Dare. Ask youth to sit in a circle and then go to each youth member to choose from one of the hats. Have the youth read it and answer or respond to the suggested action. Remember if the youth gets the truth wrong, he/she needs to pull one from the dare hat. (Bibles may not be used to answer the truth questions initially but they may be used to confirm whether the answer is correct. Answers are found in Matthew 5, 6, 7.)
2 Hand out the copies of the article or With Magazines. Read the “Snaphot” article and answer the questions in your group.
APPLY AND RESPOND:
Read all of the Dare options and ask students to commit to one of them for the following week. Spend some time praying for each other, asking for strength to carry through on their Dare commitments.
