Themes for this week:
Restoration of Community, Noticing, Prophecy
- God sent Elijah to a foreign place where he has to rely on the help of a stranger (and a stranger with next to nothing to boot). Have you ever anything like experienced this? What was it like?
- Where have you noticed the kind of giving action that the Widow in Mark displays?
- What does it meant to be a prophet or to be prophetic?
"Hard as it may be to believe in these days of infectious greed and sabers unsheathed, scientists have discovered that the small, brave act of cooperating with another person, of choosing trust over cynicism, generosity over selfishness, makes the brain light up with quiet joy."
- Natalie Angier
"Lay hold of something that will help you, and then use it to help somebody else."
- Booker T. Washington
