The following photo challenges will help you connect to the heart of God through photography. You can do these challenges on your own or in a group, daily or weekly. Read the Bible verse for inspiration and then prayerfully compose a photo that speaks to the photo challenge. Finally, take time to meditate on both the Bible verse and your photo using the reflection question(s). What does the Holy Spirit want to reveal to you through His word and your photography?
If you are using this as an online group study, we encourage the leader to post the social post to a pre-determined online platform and use the provided text as the post’s description. You may want to create a Facebook group or other social space dedicated to this photo challenge as a safe place for participants to post their photographs. Allow a space, either through a messaging platform, through video conference, or by gathering in person, to discuss your photographs and discussion questions, similar to a conventional Bible study.
