Discipleship Guide & Reflection Questions

Week 3

This week, we will be looking at our own stories, and understanding the ways we have been shaped by the experiences and expectations inherited from our families. We will consider the unwritten rules we have learned and patterns of relationship that have been modeled to us. As we learn and practice new healthy rhythms in relationships, we know that we are called to this as sons and daughters of God. This new family calls us to a love one another with honesty and compassion. We are loved by God in this same way. This week, consider how God calls you, loves you, and changes you as you grow in your relationship with him.
