What are a few of the big ways you’ve felt disrupted this season or this year?
Jeff shared that disruptions are God’s way of doing something new, and that many times the death of one vision becomes the birth of a better one. Have you discovered how a disruption caused you to see something new God was up to in your life? How?
In His ministry, Jesus did a lot of disrupting, including in the lives of His disciples, religious leaders, and in the cities He visited in order to show how God was up to something new. Read Luke 19:1-10, Matthew 16:18, and John 20:21. What can we learn about what God did and is doing through Jesus?
Jeff shared how you’ve been placed where you are for a purpose—to be here for good. And yet, it’s easy to feel like that’s not the case or it’s hard to see the purpose of where we currently are. How purposeful do you feel right now? Do you feel like life is a bit random, or do you feel like you have clarity in what you’re called to do?
The Here For Good project has three main components to it: Launch new campuses in partnership with the YMCA; Engage in digital missions; and bring hope to our community through the Local Good Center and Local Good Cafes. Which component most excites you and why?
Oftentimes, it is in the disruptions and taking big steps like Here For Good that we grow the most in our faith. Why do you think that’s the case? Has this been truth in your life?
How are you (and if applicable, your family) thinking through participating in Here For Good? What have you learned or principles you have found to be helpful when it comes to thinking through generosity?
