Reflection questions for groups

If you are listening with your small group, you may like to reflect on some of these questions together:

  • What was the one thing that most struck you when you were listening?
  • What phrase or thought found an echo in your own experience or spiritual journey?
  • Were there any common threads that linked the mission work of the people you’ve listened to and the needs of your local area?
  • Does what you’ve heard inspire you to do anything in particular in response?
  • What one prayer need will you commit to carry with you over the coming month and regularly pray for?
