Red Letter Questions – Week 1

Message Summary

From weakness to strength. From innocence to knowledge & wisdom. Growth was a part of Jesus’ humanity and early life. 

Engaging the Word

What stood out to you in the message? What did you relate to? What did you not understand? Any new insight you are taking away? 

Read Luke 2:41-52

  1. Why do you think Jesus stayed behind in the temple?
  2. What was Jesus doing in the temple?
  3. Why do you think the people were so amazed by what the heard from Jesus in the temple?

Engaging the Heart

  1. This passage talks about Jesus humanity. How do you reconcile the idea that Jesus was both God and Human? 
  2. Why is it a comfort to us to learn that Jesus was human in addition to being God?
  3. Jesus invites is to be like him. Not to become God but to become a son or daughter of God. What does that mean to you?

Engaging our World

As you close discuss with you group this idea of Jesus’ humanity. Discuss ways that this idea should impact our day to day lives. In other words, what would it look like for us to live in a way that would reflect Jesus’ humanity?

Close your time by praying together.

Greetings,
 
On August 26, 2021, IL Governor J.B. Pritzker issued an Executive Order mandating that masks be worn at all indoor gatherings. Although churches are exempt from the Executive Order, out of respect for governing authorities, Parkview has continued to ask staff, leaders, volunteers, and those attending Sunday gatherings to wear a mask while indoors. We are grateful for our people’s understanding and willingness to do so. The Governor recently indicated that his Executive Order will be rescinded on Monday, February 28th making masks no longer required in most indoor settings. In anticipation of that, on Sunday, February 27th Parkview will return to a “mask optional” policy.

While the mask policy has once again shifted, our commitment to your health and wellbeing has not. We remain dedicated to thoroughly cleaning our public spaces before and after our gatherings. Masks and hand sanitizer are still readily available to those who want them.

Navigating these difficult days has not always been clear or easy. Whatever your perspective on current realities, as fellow Christians, let us allow kindness, grace and compassion characterize our interaction and relationships. In the words of the Apostle Paul, “Let us be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

I look forward to being with you on Sundays.
 
Grace and Peace,
