Week of April 17th

Prayer & Scripture

Read the Collect of the Week and choose a passage from today’s Daily Office.

Questions:

  • What are you carrying with you from Holy Week this year?

  • Good Friday can be uncomfortable. We, as a culture, do not process grief well. Where have you experienced grief? How did you work thorough it? Are there still elements you need to process?

  • On Good Friday, the cry of "Hosanna", of save us, seems far off. Have you experienced a time when the work of God in your life seemed to be absent? When there was a void? What was/is this like?

  • After a forest fire, it is amazing to see the still, small indications of new life that push up through the destruction. Where are you feeling new life? If not your not, where do you need new life?

  • The resurrection of Christ reveals that death and darkness will not have the final say. How does that truth color your days? How is the light of Christ shining in and through your life?

Week of April 10th

Prayer & Scripture

Read the Collect of the Week and choose a passage from today’s Daily Office.

Questions:

  • What struck you in the Daily Office this week?

  • The palm is seen in some cultures as a symbol of victory, others as a symbol of peace, value or authority. What do you think they represented to the people welcoming Jesus to Jerusalem? What do they represent to you?

  • Hosanna means "save us". In the original Greek, it carried connotations of being made well, given peace, restored. How do you understand Christ's role in saving you? What does it mean to you to be saved, restored?

  • As we begin the path to the cross, what burdens are you carrying that you need to let go of?

Week of February 13, 2017

Prayer & Scripture

Read the Collect of the Week and choose a passage from today’s Daily Office.

Questions:

  • What has stuck you in the Daily Office this week?
     
  • Knowing and being known are messy and difficult. We need to both pay attention and be available in order to do so. What about this is challenging for you? What can you do this week to overcome that challenge?
     
  • We are a tribal people, drawn to groups by our likes and dislikes. There is a positive aspect to this, to finding “our people”, however, the danger is in making the differences we see into idols. What differences have you made into idols? Where are you overly proud of “your” people? Where are you overly critical of “other” people?
     
  • How can you be a light bearer this week? Where do you need to reflect Christ in your life, your sphere of influence? Who do you know that needs to feel the love of Christ?
