PITFALLS FOR THE FAMILY

 

 

Community Meditation

 

Know

  • Explain why we can and should read the Sermon on the Mount and the ethical commands of Jesus as individuals AND as a community. How is this teaching for “me” and for “us?”
  • Do you look at the church as a dispenser of religious goods and services or as a family to contribute to?

Feel

  • How would you feel about “the church” if you recognized it as your family? How would you treat it differently? [Note: this is not a call for an answer “I’d be nicer to people”]
  • Do you have high or low expectations of the church family? Where are they too high? Too low? Why?

Live

  • How have you been hurt by Christians? What do you do with that? How have we neglected life in community because of past pains or perceptions?
  • How does our church NEED your individuality but needs it IN community?
