Discussion Questions for Pentecost 18

  1. What’s your idea of fairness and justice in a world where there is so much disparity and inequality? How has the Word of God influenced your thinking and vision? (2 Kings 5:1)

  2. What is it about God’s works and power that fills you with awe, humility and gratitude? (Psa 111)

  3. There’s a phrase, “Less is more.” How would you explain your faith in succinct, clear terms to someone who is curious to understand? (2 Tim 2:8)

  4. For what do you feel moved to pause and give thanks to God for today? (Luke 17:11)

This week’s Reflect & Connect questions written by Rod Boriack.

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!
