There are several important lessons the great outdoors can teach us. Reflect on the themes that arise from the experience of “wilderness” with "Preparing for the Wilderness: A Youth Lenten Study." This six-week study invites high schoolers to explore various Scripture passages that are connected to nature and discuss the themes found within them. Each session uses one of the following Bible stories:
- Jesus’ experience of temptation in the wilderness - God’s promise to Noah following the great flood - the relationship between Sarai and Hagar - the story of the Israelites complaining in the wilderness - the role of the Psalms in Scripture - the story of the Samaritan Woman
All six studies come with a Participant Handout and a Leader's Guide, which feature prayers, suggested Scripture, discussion questions, group activities, and more.
