How to Raise Your Parents Series Arc

Josh Griffin —  April 11, 2011 — 5 Comments

Here’s the series arc our students came up with for our new 3-week series in May called How to Raise Your Parents. Still a work in progress in addressing this felt need, but I like the direction so far:

Week 1 – Trust Busters
Communication is absolutely critical in a healthy relationship between you and your parents. Communication builds trust, but trust can be lost in a moment. It takes years to build, and moments to lose – think about the last time you stayed out past curfew if you need a reminder of that fact. Respect, honor and obey your parents – doing so will build trust – which is the gateway to a healthy relationship that pleases God.

Week 2 – Great Expectations
Living in a world of peer pressure is bad enough – what do you do when your parents have great expectations on you, too. Sports, academics, admission to college – they all add up to a life filled with responsibilities and potential strain and pain. Ever dealt with favoritism or sibling competition? We’ll cover that, too.

Week 3 – Parent Panel
This weekend we’re doing something pretty unique – there won’t be a typical message like a normal weekend. We’re going to have a parent panel where students can text in their questions to be answered live on stage with a moderator keeping things moving.

  1. Sounds awesome!

  2. Josh, this sounds fantastic! I would love to see more when it is fleshed out. This also is a great way to rasie the profile of the ministry with adults who aren’t regularly volunteers serving on the panel.

    Really cool stuff. I’m going to steal the parent panel idea for sure!
    Week 1 is right on, honesty, respect, and obedience are the seeds that grow trust. Plant them and water them, students!!

    Thanks for sharing Josh!

    Blessings,
    Jeremiah
