Feast and Faith: My Place in the Jesus Movement
For this week's dinner discussion we are focusing on what it means to be part of the Jesus Movement. Below is a prayer with which to start your meal and then four discussion questions to explore this topic with your family while you eat.
Ever-living God, whose will it is that all should come to you through your Son Jesus Christ: Inspire our witness to him,that all may know the power of his forgiveness and the hope of his resurrection; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer, pg. 617)
The German theologian Meister Eckhart once said, "To God, action and being are one."
1. Do you think it's important to talk to people about your faith? Why or why not?
2. Besides words, what are some ways human communicate?
(Using those answers)
3. You've heard the saying "Show, don't tell". Are there ways to show your faith and values to people without saying it?
4. Ephesians 4:15 tells us to "Speak the truth in love". Can we demonstrate love without saying "I love you"? How?
