Our topic: death (not an easy topic in a country with such a high suicide rate)
Since it was going to be such a difficult topic, we decided to mix in a little of good ol' fashioned American fun and had people wear costumes. (See below for some photos.)
Questions included: What do you think will happen after you die?
Have you every had anyone close to you die?
How does what you believe about death affect how you live?
To be honest, the atmosphere in the room was a bit nervous and awkward as we discussed this difficult topic - most of the people in the room had lost at least one friend or family member in a tragic way. But as hard as it was to talk about death, it still opened the door for us to share WHY we do not fear death and where our HOPE comes from. It was a good reminder for each of us as well that this world isn't our home and that we do have HOPE!
Ok. . . now you gotta check out these photos. . .we did have fun!

Couldn't decide on the best caption for this one. . .
. . .either "The gang's all here"
. . . or "Jen, what exactly are you doing?" :-)
