Youth Ministry >> Confirmation P1 March 3rd or 5th


As we become wrapped up in and involved in stories, like strands of a rope wound together, stories become a part of who we are-and change us from the inside out. 

 The Bible story can implicate us like this. At first it might seem irrelevant because it's a faraway story about a distant people. But then it begins to work on us; the messages beneath the surface emerge, and we're captivated by the Bible's story. We find ourselves inside that story, identifying and empathizing with the characters. The Bible's story becomes part of our experience and identity - it is now our story. 

So get ready for our next story. It is taken from several of the Bible's books: Joshua, Judges and the two Books of Samuel. 

Below are the links for the various readings from Bible Gateway:

Joshua chapter 1 

Judges chapter 3 

1 Samuel chapters 8-10

1 Samuel chapters 16 

2 Samuel chapter 11-12
