RESPONSE TO THE WORD
Each week, during our Mid-Week Lenten Services, everyone will be given
a "Response to the Word" sheet which lists the readings for the week and asks
questions related to the theme. In case you can't be here, or in case you would like to look at those readings and questions during the week, we will post them on our blog. Here is the sheet for Week 2:
Read Hebrews 12:1-3 and Matthew 10:5-31. Then answer the following questions:
1. Did Jesus tell the disciples that their mission would be easy or difficult?
2. What did he tell them to take with them on their journey?
3. What kind of baggage do you carry that keeps you from proclaiming the Gospel?
4. What does it mean to you to risk everything for the sake of the Gospel?
