TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
Paul wrote some of his most famous words to the church in Galatia, calling them out for improperly imposing Jewish customs on their Gentile members. If Paul had a time machine, what do you suppose he might say to us today? We are one in Christ.
- How does Paul describe the community of faith?
- What stories does your community have that shape who you are as a community? What stories do you want to have shape you? What stories are ready to be laid to rest? How can you write new stories to shape who you are moving forward?
- Who do you want to get to know better? Why?
- Walk in someone’s shoes. Choose one person you love or even someone you want to know more about. Throughout the week, be aware of how the world treats that someone else based on their color, gender, size. How do you treat them?
PRAY: God of unity and justice, you care less about our ancestry and more about the state of our hearts. Cover us with the garment of your salvation and prepare us for effective witness in your world. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
BLESS: We are one in Christ. Amen
