Seeing the Big Picture Youth Ministry Game

Sometimes we don't see "the big picture". We get so focused on our own ideas and thoughts and experiences that we can't see a larger point of view. That makes it difficult for us to understand why the Holy Spirit is leading us somewhere unfamiliar or why the Church has a teaching.

This seeing the big picture game is designed to help youth understand that it can be disorienting or difficult to understand something if we only see it from a small perspective. Use it for a youth ministry program focusing on magisterium or discernment. It would also fit in well with a message of seeing how God sees.
