Gospel Reading for Week 2 "Hydrate"

Week 2 Hydrate

Discussion Points for Week 2

  • What are the things that “dehydrate” us? Have you ever felt spiritually dehydrated?
  • How did the Samaritan woman come to know who Jesus really is? How can we also know Jesus?
  • Have you felt “known” by Jesus? How do you feel about that?
  • Staying well-hydrated is important for physical health. In what ways is Jesus “living water” for you? How does your relationship with Jesus Christ “hydrate” your spirit, your life?
  • What is your experience of the Sacraments? How do we experience Christ in the Sacraments?
  • How can we lead others to the well of living water, to Jesus?    

Week 1 Check Your Pulse

Week 1 Discussion Points

  • What were you feeling on your way to this Small Group Gathering? Do you think it’s good to be here?
  • What is the pulse of your spiritual life (your relationship with Jesus)? Hardly noticeably? Racing fast with excitement or fast with fear? Do you need a jumpstart? Or … ?
  • Where would you like to go in your walk with Jesus? Where do you hope this experience of Small Groups will take you?
  • Fear keeps some people from checking their pulse or from going to a doctor. They don’t want to hear the truth. The disciples, too, were “very much afraid.” The Gospel tells us that Jesus “touched them” and said, “Rise and do not be afraid.” What fear might keep you from taking Jesus’ hand?

FAQ

When will they happen?

Small Groups will happen this year during Lent. They will meet once a week during the week of March 12th, March 19th, March 26th and April 2nd.

Small Groups ... what are they?

Small Groups are where our large church gets small. Groups are 8-12 people who meet for one hour in a fellow-parishioner's home to discuss faith, go deeper in the weekly Gospel message, and support one another in their relationship with Christ. Small Groups are a great place to explore, ask questions, and grow.
