This discussion starter has a wide mix of questions from goofy to generic to personal to spiritual. Have all the following questions written down on a sheet of paper and pass it around the circle. You can either have everyone answer the next question on the list (ie. Person one answers question one, person two answers question two…) or you can have them pick and choose which questions they want to answer. If you choose the latter, send a pen around with the paper and have them mark off what questions have already been answered. Either way, be sure to have them read the question aloud before they answer so everyone else knows what the question is.
