Discussion Questions for Christ the King

  1. Who in your life needs to hear a message of forgiveness and hope? (Luke 23:43)

  2. How does this week’s gospel frame or shape our view of the death penalty? (Luke 23:33-43)

  3. Psalm 46 could be read every morning to face the day’s headlines. How can we apply it to the world today?

  4. How do you experience God dwelling in you? Where do you go to find God’s peace? (Col 1:19-20)


This week’s Reflect & Connect questions written by Julie B. Sevig.

How to Use these Questions

These questions are intended to stimulate conversation on the Revised Common Lectionary texts for the coming week. They are designed to be accessible to individuals and groups (and not limited to preachers) who are reading the lectionary texts in advance of worship.

Working Preacher's Reflect & Connect questions may also prepare the soil for preachers and their listeners. Congregations or preachers may choose to send out a question (or questions) via email or social media -- each question is short enough to tweet.

If you do share the questions online, please use the hashtag #WorkingPreacher and link back to the site (http://www.workingpreacher.org/). No further permissions are required to use this content.

If you have specific suggestions, general comments or words of encouragement related to Working Preacher's Reflect & Connect discussion questions, please let us know via email at cbp@luthersem.edu. Thanks for participating, and for sharing these questions with your colleagues and members of your congregation!
