Discipleship Guide & Reflection Questions
This week, we will begin talking about how we can cultivate healthy relationships. The Community Temperature Reading is one method we can use. This is a foundational tool that will help us build healthy rhythms through honest communication with others. In Luke 6, we see the care that Jesus has for the poor and needy, and the words of warning for those who are in positions of power and influence. This Jesus invites us into real relationship with him. Slow down this week to make time to build your relationship with the living God.
