Discussion Questions

  1. As a boy in Provenance, Whit grew up before video games, the Internet, cell phones . . . even TV. If you were a kid back then, what would you have done for fun? After discussing, ask, "Why not do those things now?"
  2. Are you good at keeping secrets? Think of a situation where it would be wise to keep a secret. How about a time where holding onto a secret might be the wrong thing to do? Why do our motives matter?
  3. Read about a secret Jesus wanted two men to keep in Matthew 9:27-31. Why do you think Jesus did this? When have you been tempted to share a secret? Did you do it? If so, what happened?
  4. Do you think the mayor should have set the record straight about Constant Bulfinch long before Johnny's discovery? Or was he right to keep the secret for the sake of tradition?
  5. How do you typically deal with frustration and anger? If you don't already have a strategy, what would be some good first steps? Consider what the Bible says in Psalm 37:7-9, Ephesians 4:31-32 and Proverbs 14:29, 22:24.
  6. Ben told Johnny, "Grumblin' never solved anything." What did he mean? What positive actions can we take when we have a problem?
  7. Fiona warned her son to resist using truth as a weapon. How can Ephesians 4:15 and 1 Corinthians 13:6 help us know when and how to share the truth with others?
  8. What did you think of Ben's plan for revealing the truth about Constant Bulfinch after the festival? After discussing, ask, "When have you ignored good advice and later wished you had listened?"
  9. Although Constance actually battled the redcoats, the historical records show that Constant was still a hero. What did he do that was heroic?
  10. Ben said, "There's a lot of folks who don't get credit for the great things they did. All that needs to change." Do you know someone who deserves credit for a good deed? What can you do to set the record straight, or at least let that person know how much you appreciate them?
