We Are Shepherd: LiveBetterConnected

Pastor Christian Huntley

August 18, 2019

Reading — Ephesians 4:15–16, Confession — Lord, we confess that our busyness leaves us tired and without good connection. In our haste, we overlook our friends and neighbors, saying, “We should get together sometime.” Yet sometime comes too infrequently. Rekindle in us a heart for connection and give us the patience to be truly present. Help us live like you lived and love like you love. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

Questions —

  • What was your favorite group experience and why? (e.g. sports team, class project, work team)
  • Read Ephesians 4:14-16 and Ecclesiastes 4:8-12. What are some of the benefits of community? When is it important to have community in your life?
  • How has being part of a small group impacted your faith walk? If you haven’t tried one, what is holding you back?
  • Is there a group in your life that could transform from being in proximity to being community? What would it take for that to happen?
