Pathways to Discipleship
I’ve Been Meaning to Ask...This phrase suggests curiosity and implies “I’ve been thinking about you and wanting to check in...” We will be asking 4 questions that encourage connection, invite us to share our pain, and seek ways to care for one another. Guided by scripture and videos, the classes will help strengthen our capacity for empathy and compassion and show us the simple power of asking unassuming questions.
MARCH 13 - Where does it hurt?
Consider how you process pain:
What makes your heart hurt?
Where in your life do you feel vulnerable, humbled or broken open?
What is your first memory of grief? What have you learned from your grief?
How do you emotionally process your pain? (time alone, therapy, exercise, time with friends)
Describe a time when you felt fully seen, known and accepted for who you are.
Share about a time you witnessed someone else’s grief or pan. How did that experience impact you?
MARCH 20 - What do you need?
What’s a gift (tangible or intangible) you’ve received that you’ll never forget?
Think of a time that someone extended care to you. What did they do and how did it make you feel? What set this time apart from other times you’ve received care?
MARCH 27 - Where do we go from here?
Read Acts Chapter 10 and answer these questions:
How are the characters’ preconceived notions challenged, disrupted or reconfigured?
What does Cornelius want from Peter? Could he have gotten this on his own?
Why does Peter go?
