Faith on Fire
Faith of Fire
What it is: These 15 “faith in action” lessons, written by Debbie Gowensmith and Helen Turnbull, help young people make a difference in three ways: caring for God’s creation, community service, and global service.
The scoop: This resource will appeal to youth leaders looking for ways to expand kids’ faith and service beyond common options such as soup kitchens and mission trips. The authors neatly divide the lessons into distinct elements that allow leaders to pick and choose activities. You’ll not only find the usual discussion starters, role-plays, and Bible study handouts but also experiments, investigations, and nature walks. Depth-giving extras include: information sidebars, statistics, quotes, and success stories. This isn’t a fun-andgames-oriented book. Expect a lot of thoughtful discussions and research. Some of the ideas will require significant legwork or access to the Internet. Cost: $16.99
