Ice Breaker – Back To School

Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

(I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

Last night was Back to School Night at the high school where my kids go to school.  We had a great time following their class schedule and meeting their teachers.  Today’s Ice Breaker question is inspired by our evening.

Question:  If you could go back to school, what class or degree would you pursue or retake and why?

My Answer:  If I was going back to high school, I would try to fit a wood shop class into my schedule.  I never took this class when I was in high school, but I think it would be so useful now.

If I was going back to college to pursue another degree, I would consider something in one of the three areas:

  • Communications – To help me become a better communicator.
  • Web Design/Programming – To improve my skill in designing things on the web.
  • Missions – To expand my thinking and effectiveness in ministering to others at home and overseas.
