All of us wrestle with doubts about significance, meaning, and purpose for our lives; that voice that says, “If you weren’t here, would the world really be any different?” Today we’ll talk about the absurdity of generosity—how by engaging generously in what God is doing in the world, we can be confident that our life matters.
Welcome to the Chaser–a few questions after the weekend service to start conversations and push a little deeper. Go on. Dive in.
This weekend was all about good news, so let’s keep that rolling. Everyone, share the best news you heard all week, or maybe a story that made you laugh. (Big win at the office, new family member, best Chinese take-out ever, you get the idea…)
Throughout the campaign, God did incredible things . But there was only so much time to share stories during service. Think through the time you’ve spent at Crossroads and share how I’m In impacted you. (First time here? No worries. This app in your hand? It’s a result of I’m In.)
Absurd: noun - ab·surd - ridiculously unreasonable, unsound, or incongruous
The world may say God’s love, God’s call, and God’s generosity are absurd. What the most absurd thing you’ve done in faith? And what was the result?
Let’s shift gears for this last question. We know it’s better to give than to receive, and we saw that demonstrated this weekend. But sometimes receiving a gift can be just as tough. What’s the most generous thing you’ve received? Where did it come from? How did you feel?
Want to give others the chance to share a meal and community? You’re in luck. This week is the Thanksgiving Food Drive. As a group, decide if you want to team up and fill some boxes together. Then make a plan, divide up the work, and go for it.
