March Madness is upon us! And even if you have zero interest in sports or college basketball, the fellowship of gathering to watch a game is a great way to invite new young adults to your ministry. And March Madness also gives you an opportunity to talk about faith. That’s right: faith. But, if you are more sports-minded: Check out this article from Busted Halo about the college basketball post season and maybe start a friendly young adult pool to chose the winners of the tournaments. Busted Halo’s Catholic Bracketology can help you out with your Catholic picks — will Notre Dame, Georgetown or another Catholic school make it into the Final Four?
Here are some March Madness conversation starters:
- What was your faith life or church life like in college? What has your faith journey been like since then?
- Who were your spiritual mentors or people of faith that you looked up to in college?
- What “madness” consumes your life right now? How might you turn some of that madness over to God or simplify things in your life right now?
