Part 1: Question Everything
As individuals, we have a tendency to avoid asking the hard questions. Jesus, however, constantly used questioning as a means to build relationships, push inward reflection, and encourage the challenge of our 'answers.' By asking questions, we're able to form community with the people around us and discover what it is we truly believe.
Introductory Question: Is there gray area to faith, or is it all black and white?
Activity: At your tables, have a conversation around the question, "is blue the best color in the rainbow?" However, you may only respond in question form.
"Is blue the best color in the rainbow?"
"Why would you pick blue over orange?"
"Orange you glad I didn't say banana?"
Part 2: Love God
Love takes many forms, and most of us have a different understanding of what love looks like. This week, we spent time in conversation around what it means to not only love, but love God. Below, you'll find the introduction video, the four large-group questions asked, and closing remarks. Watch the video first, then spend some time reflecting over the four questions and closing message.
Question 1: What does love look like to you?
Question 2: Is love an emotion or a choice?
Question 3: What would it look like for us to love so much it's dangerous?
Question 4: Taking what Brené said about love into consideration, what would it look like for us to express a love for God?
Part 3: Love Neighbor
Tonight, as we wrapped up our Vision series, we took a look at the story of the Good Samaritan. We learned a bit of the history that surrounds the characters in the passage, and we discussed why loving our neighbor is such a foundational piece of who we are.
