Small group study: Gospel of Luke

Small-group---Luke---tnThis time, our small group outline is set up a bit differently than in the past. It is organized with readings from the Gospel of Luke on a daily basis, starting with Dec 1, to map onto the Christmas season.

You may use these ideas as best serves your purposes. One way to approach it for small group discussion is to have each member read the passages on a daily basis, and ask themselves the following questions each day:

  1. What? (What does it say? Summarize/Paraphrase the reading)
  2. So What? (What significance does that have to you?)
  3. Now What? (How do you respond to the message in the reading? What does it call you to do or not do? Say or not say? Be or not be?)

Then, in a weekly small group meeting, follow the usual "Suggested Basic Structure for Your Weekly Get Together" shown in the right sidebar,  using the above 3 questions as discussion topics.

"There is no adequate way to describe God except in terms of pure love and pure mercy towards the whole human race. That mercy is God's desire to save everyone, to make everyone happy forever, and to give us everything He has."
