Can You Keep A Secret?
The Beloved; July 10th, 2022
The Center of Reality is Loving Relationships
Mark 1:1, 9-11, 21-28
Ron spent some time in this sermon talking about heaven being present in our world, just hidden. Have you ever had a moment when you felt like God was with you or that you were in his presence?
What does it mean to you that, in creating you, God did not need to get anything from you but wanted to give something to you? What is one thing about you that you think God delights in?
If the center of reality is loving relationship, where have you experienced that the most? Who has loved you well in your life and in community?
Is there anyone in your life that does not know Jesus or does not think about God in a way that looks like this Jesus that we see in the gospel of Mark? Is there some practical way you can speak to them or actively love them this week?
Name one relationship that you like like to become more Christ-like, more filled with self-giving love and what you can do to help nurture that. Pray for each other around this relationship as you wrap up your discussion time.
Thank you God, that you created us to join in the dance of perfect love that you have shared since before time and before creation. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, pull us into the joy that you have and let us feel your delight so that we can share it with the world. Amen.Downloadable Version
