|Date:||January 24, 2018|
|Ages:||Adults (18 and up)|
|What:||Explore more deeply last Sunday's sermon and Bible passages with Rev. Maguire.
- Why did Jesus intentionally seek out the Galilean fishermen as his disciples and not people from the religious or educated classes?
- What actually qualifies someone to be a disciple of Jesus? What disqualifies a person?
- What kind of life was it to be a fisherman in Peter's day?
- Why did the four men so quickly, and readily, leave everything and get up and follow Jesus? How do you think their families reacted?
- As “fishers of men” what were the disciples' responsibilities?
- How all-consuming is this call to be fishers of people? What does it cost us?
- Have we watered down the call of Jesus to make it more palatable, or acceptable to others and ourselves? If we have, how have we watered it down?
- What has faith cost you over the years? Was it worth it?
- How does your personal world view (how you see things and value things) mesh with Jesus' world view?
- What will it take for us to fully and unreservedly follow Jesus?
