Community Meditation Questions

Growing in Knowledge

  • Read together John 12:20-24. and discuss the following: What significance is there in that “non Jews” were seeking Jesus? In verse 23, 24 what does Jesus say about his death? The last part of this passage is aimed towards you and me. Love, life, serve and follow are important terms here—discuss these together.

Feeling Life Deeply

  • Share something in your life where repentance and transformation is needed? What of your old manner of life needs to die?

Living with Courage

  • Share something that you would like to see God do in your home, in and through our church and in our city. Use the card from Sunday morning and write these down. Put it somewhere where you will see it for hopeful prayer.
  • Jesus has ordained that his mission be accomplished by the sacrificial and passionate following of his people. His death and resurrection launch us in mission. How are we embracing this for our townships? Our State? Our Region?
