Community Meditation

  • Read the book of Jude and note the nature of the warnings given by God. 
  • In the last section of the book what does Jude exhort us to do? What do you learn about God in his doxology/benediction?
  • Over the next week carefully read the book of James.  List out the reasons God might have for allowing suffering in our lives?  Observe the trouble Christians might have with one another and their source. Have you observed any of these in your relationships?
