To engage the learners in a study of the Scripture text:
For broader comparison with other texts, distribute copies of the “Sailors Afraid” exercise from the activity page, which you can download here. Have learners complete it in groups. Discuss as time allows.
- If all your learners are online, consider using Zoom Breakouts (which you can learn about here).
- If some of your learners are online and others are in the classroom with you, consider breaking the in-person learners into groups together and using Zoom Breakouts for the online learners.
To encourage personal application:
Distribute copies of the “Fear Busters” exercise on the activity page. Allow time for learners to work in groups for the Scripture search portion of the activity and then complete the second half of it individually. Encourage placement where learners will see theirs daily, as indicated.
Note: Whenever you distribute copies of anything, use hard-copy (paper) handouts for those physically present and e-copies for those joining online via Zoom, etc.
