Questions from Sunday Night 1-26-2009

I have posted the talk from last night on the podcast page here.
 1/25/09 "Questionable Kingdom Builders".  Or you can find it by subscribing through iTunes.  Here are some discussion questions that might help lead to some further thought on the topic.

1. Does it seem like a good or bad idea to leave the task of building the Kingdom to all of us?

2. We talked about the nature of kingdom (upside down/backwards).  In what ways have you seen the power of that kind of kingdom building in your own life?

3.  Was there a time in your life when the "questions" were as important or more to your growth than the "answers"?

4.  What are some of those big questions that you have encountered which even when answered have just opened up another world of new questions?

5.  What are some way that you can live questionably in the context of your life?

Weekly Sunday Night Questions....

We are going to begin to post some discussion questions each week based on the previous Sunday night's talk.  These will begin to be posted on Mondays and will serve as the starting point for our small group discussions. If you are not able to be a part of a small group we hope that these questions might encourage further exploration f the themes and ideas we are examining in the book of Luke.

The talk from last week can be heard online here, or you can subscribe to us through iTunes.  Here are some questions to maybe get the discussion going a little.

  1. Who is someone that has modeled the love of God in your life?

  2. Do you find it easy or difficult to think of God as a Father who is pleased by our attempts at imitation (even if we are not particularly good at the imitation)?

  3. When all is said and done what do you hope will be said about the life that you lived?

  4. What keeps you from living that kind of life?

  5. How can we as God's family help each other lead the lives we would like?

Drumroll Please.....

Haiti water project
It appears as though I have finally waded through all of the financial
stuff from December and finally have an actual total on your giving
towards the Haiti Water Project.  as you know we were hoping to be able
to raise $3,000 in order to build a clean water well for 2,000 or more

guys have absolutely floored me with your generosity for this
worthwhile cause.  When all was said and done you guys donated a grand
total of $9,863.00 !!!

give you some perspective this is over 10% of our total annual budget! 
And you guys gave it in a couple of weeks!  Thank You for generosity
and your witness toward the true nature of the Christmas season.
