Have you bought one or more lottery tickets in the past year? Or played poker or bridge for money with friends? Or maybe you've bet on March Madness, a Super Bowl Game, or a horse race like the Kentucky Derby?

In 2005 gambling generated $84.65 billion dollars in the United States, ten times the amount Americans spent on movie tickets. Every year two-thirds of American adults gamble. Even though most Christian denominations have taken strong stands against gambling, only 28 percent of Americans believe gambling is morally wrong. Do you know your denomination's stance on gambling? Does it match your personal views?

In this one-session study on gambling, participants will learn about the history of gambling in America, discover arguments in favor of and against legalized gambling, find out what their denomination and others are saying, and wrestle with the theological issues involved with legalizing gambling.

This is an issue that will surely provoke lively and interesting conversations!
