The entire nation was rocked by the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Reverberating from the heartland were tremors of grief and anger, along with rising tension. LinC examines the Ferguson shooting, looking specifically at how God calls us to respond to emotionally charged situations.
Key Scriptures: Mark 11:15-18; Luke 6:27-31; John 8:3-11. Some challenging moments in life scream for us to take the easier road, or even quit. The Bible is full of stories about people who had the same experience. Each time they faced a defining moment, they had to decide if they would give up or persist through the hardship. Using the movie, The Maze Runner, next week’s LinC will help you encourage your students to persist when facing life’s challenges.
