I though some of you might know the best way to go about focusing discussion about god AKA Jesus.
About two weeks ago the older members of our church chastized us younger generation for not getting involved. Upon being Chastized I organized a group of us young adults. There are three couples and one single. I had a Pizza party and invited them all over to the house. I hand made Pizza for everone, and we had our beverages of choice. The goal of our organization was to get people talking about Jesus. As most of us our ignorant regarding the why’s of catholicism. Once everyone was feed we tried to start discussion. We more or less hit a dead wall. People feel that their faith is a very personal thing, and they did not want to discuss it. Others felt like they didn’t want to say the wrong thing or be judged by people. We tried very had to talk alittle about Jesus and we did have some local successes. However, most people seemed very tense and unwilling to discuss the magesty of Jesus or the church. This inital meeting was tense but everyone enjoyed it. They all want to meet again, so I believe the interest is there, but I am not educated enough to truely develop a topic of real interest to get people talking.
What I need is a way to invoke people. A way to truely interest them in talking about this topic as it is the Core of the church. If any of you have any ideas on how I should proceed please inform me. Most everyone that met wants this to be a real viable group, and I believe that we all want to deepen our faith or they would not have come. I need a way to proceed gently but pointedly.
Please help if you can.
