Sunday to Monday | Belonging

On Sunday, Pastor Dave continued with his 5 part sermon series on Practicing Greatness, inspired by Reggie McNeal. The topic of week 4 was "Belonging." Pastor Dave talked about "infiltrating the silos" that delineate our lives ("silos" of work, church, family, entertainment, sports, education, etc.) He encouraged us to take risks to find a place where we belong, and stressed the importance of building relationships. One story he told challenged us to reflect on giving ourselves, rather than giving things. He reminded us to never forget that Jesus chose us! 


Here are some questions to guide you through the week...

· When have you ever mourned a friend’s death as David did for Jonathan (II Samuel 1:1-27)? 
  Why was that friendship worth grieving?
· Do you have enough friends? What stands in the way of you having more friendships (i.e., time, energy, 
  fear of risk)? Take time to pray for the friendships you have now, and those Jesus is preparing for you.
· Send a note of blessing to an old friend, current friend and a potential friend (Genesis 12:1-3).
· What does it mean for you to have Jesus for a friend? (John 15:12-17)
