Trying to do something new and interesting (hopefully) with the confirmation class. We're going to talk about gifts of the spirit, and I used Comic Life to put together a little character sheet for the kids to fill out. The idea is to spark a conversation about the spiritual gifts described in the three main NT lists as well as turn us to thinking about which gifts we have, which we want to develop, and which we just wonder about.
I tried to change all of the spiritual gifts listed into I-statements that the kids can either identify with or not. I hope this goes well. The idea is just to jump-start talk about spiritual gifts, and to connect the lists in the Bible with what we do, or don't do, every day.
Anybody reading this brave enough to post your scores in the comments thread?
This is really a rudimentary sheet - the software is more versatile than this, but I don't have all that long to learn how to use it better. I got the idea from Pete Figtree using Comic Life for his syllabus and making character sheets for all of his high school English students. What he came up with is more of an example of what you can do with the software, which is free for 30 days, and based on its potential, may end up being something I pay to register.
