Crave: Cradle to the Grave

old young hands

This week we’re going to theme the entire night around the different stages of life; from birth to death and everything in between. The idea is that we get our youth to think about life as being more than just “right now” and then teach on how the good news of Christianity is not age specific. You don’t have to reach a certain age before you can become a maturing Christian, it can happen anytime between birth and death. We hope it will encourage an attitude of generosity towards other generations and a sense of long-term purpose in people’s day-to-day decisions. We will look at Moses (old) and Timothy (young) as our case studies.

The Event:

  • March 15th
  • 6:15 -9pm at St. Johns
  • Cost: $5
  • Food: Dinner provided

For Home:

This topic might be a good opportunity to talk about the elderly or recently passed members of your family. A chance to fondly remember the good times and reflect on what your family might have learnt from them, good and bad. It’s also a chance to talk to your children about the future. What sort of a person do they want to be in ten years time? Do they perhaps hold a negative view of older people that needs to change? They will after all be old themselves some day. Maybe they’re not even acting their own age? You could chat about what steps forward they need to make in order to become more mature.
