About

Y20 was born out of the desire to create a community at Keystone where young people, about 18-30 years old, could come and simply be themselves; laugh loudly, talk about the day-to-day grind of life, express hopes and desires, and ask honest questions about God and faith. As a program it’s pretty simple, we meet up on Thursday nights around 7pm, eat a home-cooked dinner together and then dive into a relevant faith-based discussion. We also incorporate serving in our city and community, a fall retreat, and other events for the sake of fun and community!

Shema

Watch the Bible Project Video on Shema.

As we get started, why do you think the Jewish people recited the Shema in the morning and at night? 

Would there be valuable for us to do any similar type of practice?


Read Deuteronomy 6

  • What is going on in this passage? Why is it important?

Now read Mark 12:28-34

  • Why do you think it is important that Jesus pulls from the Shema?
  • Why is it important that Jesus added the second part (which is actually a quote from Leviticus 19:18)?

The Shema video defined shema as listening but with a connotation of also doing

  • Do you feel like you are good at listening?
  • Why is it important that this prayer begins with "Shema oh Israel"?
  • How might you bring the concept of shema into your day to day life?

YHWH

Watch the Bible Project video on YHWH.

We are focusing on the first part of the Shema:

"Hear oh Israel, the LORD is your God, the LORD alone..."


How often do you think about the name of God? Why do we call God "god"? 


Read Exodus 3

  • What is the context of this chapter?
  • What grabbed your attention in this passage? 
  • What do you think of the name God gives Moses to describe himself?

Why do you think the Jewish people and their scribes went to such lengths so people wouldn't say or write the name of God?


What can we learn from the Jewish people when it comes to our relationship with God/Yahweh/Adonai/etc?
