We did our semester kick off yesterday by heading to one university to talk to students about God. We tried out a new tool called "soularium" which is a set of 40 pictures of random things. We asked students to identify pictures that...
1. Describe their life right now.
2. What they wish was part of their life.
3. Select a photo that describes God.
4. What they have experienced spiritually.
5. What they wish were true of their spiritual life right now.
So, by students selecting photos to describe their life and spiritual views we get an amazingly quick and often deep look into their experiences and how they see things. It opens the door for questions and great dialogue. We also get to share what we believe about God, how we have experienced Him, and how He can change their life and give them hope. If you want to know more about this tool you can go to the soularium website by just clicking on the title to this blog post.
So we did that for a few hours and then went to the other university that evening to meet students in the dorms and hand out welcome back gift bags and do some evangelism too. This too went really well and we had a student who has been a part of Agape come with us, which made it even cooler.
In all it was a brilliant day. My team did a great job, I am so proud of them. They Rock!
