CrossWay On Purpose – Session 10

On Wednesday we took a different turn with CrossWay On Purpose.  The plan had been to start processing and applying all that we learned from the Scripture passages that we studied for the first 9 weeks.  But with my trip to Arkansas over the weekend, I was not able to prepare for that part yet.

So instead the 10 of us who were there did something different.  In the middle of all the planning and strategizing and organizing that we have ahead of us, it could be easy to lose sight of a basic essential: people.  Relationships.  So we used Session 10 as an opportunity to get to know each other a little better.

What we did was sit around some tables and pass around a mug containing slips of paper.  Each slip had a question on it.  The person who drew the paper would answer the question, then we’d go around the group and everyone would answer the question.  Some of the questions we had included:

  • If Jesus were to follow you around all day, is there anything you would do differently?
  • If you could choose to live in any time period, which one would you choose and why?
  • If Jesus came back as a man today, what do you think He would look like?
  • What do you think is the main reason that some people don’t believe in God?
  • Do you think you have become more spiritual or less spiritual over the last year, and why?

These questions prompted some great discussion, brought out some profound insights, and accomplished the purpose: we all got to step a little further into each other’s minds.  It was pretty interesting!  And it also turned into a time of encouragement and support for one another, which was really cool.

Next week we’ll begin sifting and applying the info we gathered over several weeks of Bible study… and maybe we’ll start by passing around the mug again once or twice!

By the way, I’d love to hear your responses to the questions above.  Please feel free to share your answers in the Comments section below this post!
