Discussion Questions for Ord. 23

  1. In what settings to you find it easy and hard to believe God takes pleasure in you? (Ps 149:4)



  2. In our time, what are works of darkness, and what does the armor of light look like in practice? (Rom 13:12)



  3. Have you ever seen this pattern of confronting sin work well, and if so what made it work? (Matt 18:15-20)




This week's Reflect & Connect questions written by Lynne Baab.


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!
