Week 8

“All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble. Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”1 Peter 5:5-7

  1. Do you have humble pie moment like Michael’s mechanical bull story or a time you had to eat humble pie? What happened? How did it make you feel?
  1. What does this passage reveal about God? About us as humans? About you?
  1. Do you agree that we can choose to “put on” humility? Why or why not?
  1. What would putting on humility look like for you in your daily life? With your family? Your co-workers? Strangers?
  1. Which posture (white knuckling, clenched fists, open palms) best describes your posture today? Most often? What might that mean?
  1. To end your time, pray this prayer out loud together as a group:

“Lord, we choose to humble ourselves today. Help us to put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. We need you Lord. Amen!”

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 The Governor recently indicated that his Executive Order will be rescinded on Monday, February 28th making masks no longer required in most indoor settings.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,
Ray S. Kollbocker
Lead Pastor
