The inspiration for this series came from the Ten Commandments, found in Exodus 20.
I first came across a similar series used to teach English to internationals. I thought the basic concept was interesting and would produce good conversation. You will notice though, that there is no mention of God in this series and yet all the concepts flow from God. I am calling this series, “The Paths to Peace.” There are two ways to approach these discussions. One is to use the Conversation Art Cards. They can be accessed at http://www.conversationartcards.com. They can be purchased at CruPress.com
- What Do We Adore?
- Satisfying Friendships
- A Good Name
- The Rhythm of Life
- Honor Your Parents
- A Single Story
- All You Need is Love
- Something to Share
- Let Yourself Be Seen
The second method is to take a more concentrated reading route. You are the best judge of your audience. I believe you will be rewarded with insightful conversation with either method you choose.
