2019 Session 2 - The Situation of the World and of the Church

Reflection Questions:

  1. How has the false dichotomy of sacred vs. secular kept you from seeing your neighbor’s deep religiosity? Do you tend to view your neighbor in a separate category from yourself? How has this kept you from neighbor love? Be specific.

  2. Our “boats” are filled with deeply religious, fearful, and desperate neighbors. Are we asleep and detached or awake? What would being awake toward your neighbor look like? Awake toward their misplaced worship? Awake toward their fears? Awake toward their desperation?

  3. Our greatest problem is not being against others but being for ourselves; not a how to problem but a want to problem. What’s the greatest want to hindrance in your heart? Nationalism? Fear? Comfort? How does the gospel free us from these concerns?
