THIS WEEK’S LESSON
Think of your favorite stories.
Do any of the characters go on an adventure?
Adventures are at the heart of many of our most loved stories. Alice in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, Wendy in Peter Pan — each one tells the story of a character who started in a place of comfort and then left to face the unknown. Chances are that the same thing happens in some of the stories you love.
Why are there so many stories about adventures? One reason is that adventures are fun. But another reason is that adventure transforms us and helps us grow up.
You experience adventures throughout your life too. What are some things you’ve faced or are facing now?
No matter the specifics of your story, you will become a different person than you were when you started. As Alice says at the end of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, “I could tell you my adventures — beginning from this morning, but it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
