My congregation is in transition, with our previous pastor having taken another call and an interim in place. So, we’re organizing a series of small group discussions using a set of four big questions. And it struck me that these four questions could be a great program for a retreat or day of reflection.
- When have you had an experience of the Holy?
- What’s unique about us, our group, our circle, our organization now?
- What is God calling us to do or to be in the future?
- What gets in the way of our going there? What are some things we do now that don’t help us toward the future God is calling us to?
When we did a practice discussion session, we found we could have talked for hours. Try it out for yourself. You can ponder these questions at home in your journal or bring your group together and spend an hour on them.
