Confirmation Makeup Assignment for February 24th or 26th

Tonight we did session 5 of Echo the Story on the 10 Commandments

As you've listened to and imagined these stories, how many of you have had part of a story seem to jump out at you? It might be an image or a word-something that just seems to stick in your mind

I think when this happens, it's often God illuminating something for you. That's why after the story you are given time to think more deeply and in this case write about what you noticed. This time to process helps you begin to connect the biblical story to your own story.

When these stories help us begin to see our own story differently, we can also help connect others to the Bible story. That's why we share what's meaningful to us-so we can find the meaning together. Taken from Echo the Story Leader Guide - St. Mary's Press
