Joseph's Coat and Dreams
Joseph’s relationship with his brothers was not a good one! The question to focus on in this session is about how anger can lead us to do bad things.
Joseph is Sold
The main theme here is trusting God when life is hard. When everything seems to have gone wrong can we trust that God has plans for our lives?
Joseph in Prison
During our lives many of us may experience being wrongfully accused of doing something, but for Joseph the accusation led to imprisonment. Despite this, he still trusted God. What can we learn from him?
Joseph trusted in God through all the bad times, but he could never have anticipated such an amazing turn of events. An interesting discussion point here on how God speaks through dreams and in other ways.
Brothers go to Egypt
It was within Joseph’s powers to punish his brothers and yet he chose to forgive. This session encourages discussion of the importance of forgiveness.
All’s well that ends well - in this story anyway! God’s purposes are fulfilled and Joseph is finally in the position that God had planned all along. Something to talk about is when there is no obvious good outcome. Where is God then?
