  1. Discuss how one of the major vices (envy, vanity, sloth, avarice, anger, gluttony, lust) is described in Scripture.
  2. Explain how this vice is present and even promoted in our contemporary culture.
  3. Discuss how the virtue of charity (or love) can address and combat this particular vice.
  4. Describe with concrete examples how you could help your church to overcome this particular vice.

In addition, create a title slide, reference slides, and slide notes that provide detailed explanation of your research and observations.
