Paul and Persecution Theme Night

As I wrote last night, the lectionary reading in Acts for today was on St. Paul's conversion. In honor of his life and ministry, I've based the theme of tonight's youth meeting on Paul and Persecution.

Message: Saul to Paul (the life and ministry of the apostle Paul)

Text: Acts 9:1-22

Trivia: Life of St. Paul

  • Blind Shoe Grab : “Arrange chairs in a circle. All of the Cinderellas (girls) in the group select a chair. The Prince Charmings (boys) each pick a girl and kneel in front of her. He removes her shoes and holds them in his hand. Then the girls blindfold the guys. The leader calls for the shoes and they are thrown into the middle of the circle. On the signal, the guys crawl to the center and attempt to find their Cinderella's shoes. Each girl can only shout out instructions to her prince. After finding the shoes the princes each crawl back to their Cinderella and put her shoes on correctly." (

Discussion Questions:
  • What are some ways the early church were persecuted?
  • What are some ways people in foreign countries are persecuted today?
  • Do we face persecution here in America? What does it look like?
  • What can we do when we face persecution?
