Prayer: Help us practice forgiveness, God, and transform our communities.
Reading: Mark 2:1-12 (Click to read text)
Stop and GROW: After reading the text, discuss/ponder the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which are part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers.
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, challenges, or doesn’t make sense to me in this text?
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text or is my favorite part of the story?
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me?
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text?
Reflection: How will you carry forgiveness in your heart today? That’s a question we will ask our summer campers this year as we study “Transformed Community: God’s Agent of C.H.A.N.G.E.”
There is no acronym associated with C.H.A.N.G.E. Our curriculum writers were playing off the Marvel superheroes and “Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.” But several times in our curriculum, we are given the opportunity to come up with words that start with C, H, A, N, G, E. On this day that we study forgiveness, can you come up with words that start with C, H, A, N, G, and E that relate to forgiveness?
