A Story to Tell

First Century Temple in Jerusalem Date: November 13, 2016 Liturgical Day: The 26th Sunday after Pentecost; Proper 28C

Summary: In the face of very difficult times, Jesus promises to be with his followers, and empower their witness to God’s power and love. They had a story to tell, and so do we. In our own divisive time, God unites us around our faith in Christ, and empowers us to share it with the world.

Some discussion Questions:

  1. In a very dark depiction of world events, what hope does Jesus offer to his followers?
  2. How do  Malachi's words foreshadow what Jesus will eventually say to his followers?
  3. What has God done in our lives that causes us to shout for joy and burst into song?
