Discussion Questions: Week of May 26, 2019

This week’s discussion questions are based on the First Reading found at Acts 15:1-2, 22-29

  • Tell of a time when you had to do something you really did not want to do. What made you not want to do it . . . fear of rejection, fear of making a mistake, outside your comfort zone, etc.?
  • What was the outcome? Did you feel it was an opportunity for growth?  If so, how?
  • How do you prepare yourself to do something you don’t want to do?
  • Have you found a way to handle uncomfortable situations?
  • Have these experiences ever made you feel like you were lucky to have had it?
