Sweetest Name On Earth

Lead your group in worship by focusing on the names and character of Jesus.

Leader: Ask your group to speak about what comes to their minds when you mention a certain title. For example: You (leader) say, "Mom," and your group responds in popcorn style saying, "nurture, laughter, compassionate, disciplinarian, etc.

Once you have exhausted one title, move through the list. You will end with Jesus. After the group has shared, have several people help you read the following writing about Jesus.

List of names:  Mom, Dad, sister, brother, grandparents, teacher, policeman, doctor, coach, pastor, friend, Jesus.
