Parent Connect - September 29th

This week at Confirmation we talked about the existence of God and the implications this has on our lives. Teenagers will likely have a discussion with someone who does not believe in God or who challenges their belief in God at some during high school. This week we began to give teenagers some practical reasons why there is a Creator, and that Creator is God. We also challenged them to make an important distinction; we challenged them to ask if they just believed there was a God or they believed in God. Belief in God requires trust and self-surrender, whereas belief that there is a God doesn't necessarily require our response. Teens discussed how they lived their lives currently, and struggles they faced with living a life trusting completely in God. The question how fully we believe in god is an important one, and is worthy of further discussion after this session. Some questions you can use to continue this discussion with your candidate are:

  • Have you ever been in a discussion with someone about the existence of God? What happened?
  • If someone were to ask you why you believed in God, what would you tell him or her? (This is a great time to share reasons why you believe in God, and some of your faith experiences with your son or daughter).
