A few weeks ago I shared how we are going through the Gospel of Luke, and hopefully Acts as well, this year in our club. I thought I’d pass along a club talk and campaigners lesson I did for our club a few weeks ago. As you may know, we do the campaigners lesson based on the club talk earlier in the week.
Two years ago we worked through the gospel of Mark in a school year. Last year we went through the gospel of John and got some help from friends as well. I also heard a lot of great feedback from clubs who went through the “I Am” statements in John. This year we are going to go through the gospel of Luke… I bet you can’t guess what we might do next year, can you?
If you follow YLHelp you know that I am a big advocate of working through the Bible as it presents itself, in fact we do this in club and campaigners. A lot of times this is called an expository, exegetical approach, or a verse-by-verse, whatever you want to call it, it has a lot of advantages as I’ve discussed before. But in all honesty we normally do not work through every story, we simply do not have enough time to do that in our format, so we do end up being selective (topical teaching). But if you do your best to stick to, say, one chapter a week, some interesting things happen. One of those interesting things is that you end up talking about things that might not be a normal club talk, or one that you have heard before at YL.
