About our Soul Care lessons: One of the most transformative ways we can engage people in spiritual disciplines is to give them the chance to actively practice them alongside a guide. Every lesson in our Soul Care series introduces a spiritual discipline and walks participants through a guided practice of the discipline! This type of experiential learning is empowering of personal faith development and helps the classroom become a sacred space for the pursuit of discipleship.
This lesson is part of a series on ancient spiritual practices which are native to the Jewish faith tradition and still practiced in that faith community to this day. Midrash Is an ancient Jewish spiritual practice of engagement and imagination, and a way in which Paul, the Gospel writers, and even Jesus engaged with scripture. Teenagers will find it imaginative, liberating, and maybe even fun.
