Small Group Inspirational Guide
Fast Food is a resource based around several meals. Each meal comes from a different country where Christians are persecuted for their faith. And every second month you do three things…
1. Share a meal with others
Every two months you share a meal with family, friends, your church group or small group. One time you might have a curry, the next time you might have a tiny, plain bowl of rice. Each meal links to a country where Christians are persecuted.
2. Serve up stories of the persecuted Church
During the meal, you’ll explore the challenges that Christians face in that country. To help you, we’ve provided six menus, suggesting what food to serve, and giving stories and prayer points about the country.
3. Take away a ‘fasting’ challenge
At the end of the meal you will be challenged to ‘fast’ from something or to give something up for a month. It might mean ‘fasting’ from comfort and sleeping on the floor, or giving up money and trying to cope on a very limited budget. You might even be challenged to ‘fast’ from speaking! Each challenge gives a taste of what life is like for persecuted Christians around the world. Every second month (or whenever you choose) you can reflect on what you have learned, and how God has spoken to you. And then it will be time for another meal – and a different challenge!
