March Madness!

March Madness is here! How are your brackets? Whether you are a college basketball aficionado or have never watched a game in your life, March Madness, as well as watching sports in general, is a great bonding experience. Invite young adults to gather to watch some of the games, score your brackets, and check-in on how President Obama is doing with his. (Maybe you’ll want to try some of these nacho recipes!) Share this touching story about one of the stars of March Madness — the Kansas Jayhawks’ Thomas Robinson — who suffered great personal tragedy last year and has overcome it to compete in this year’s tournament:

  • When in your life have you felt at rock bottom? What or who helped you back to your feet again?
  • What connections do you see between the practice and discipline of sports and the practice and discipline of faith? How do you exercise your faith on a daily basis? What do you to do mix up your faith workout routine?
