Starting Spiritual Conversations

Facebook Get-to-know-you

We are always looking for ways to get a feel for what young people think about God and to bring God into our conversations.  Sometimes it’s challenging to think of new ways to do this week after week.  Here is a simple tool that we have used in lunch club and drop-in settings to get young people talking about God.  

Invite young people to complete their Facebook “Profile Page” by filling in the blanks and sketching in a few pictures.  Once everybody is finished, invite the group to ask each other questions about any of the areas of their Facebook page so they can get to know each other better.  We’ve included a “Religious Views” category so that talking about their beliefs can be a natural part of the conversation.  

Bonus:  If you as a leader sketch a picture of God or Jesus as one of your ‘Top Friends,’ it gives you a chance to share part of your faith story and why God is an important part of your life.

We hope this tool is useful and let us know how you get on with it!
