Speaking of JESUS


November 10, 2019: Episode 16 | Speaking of Downers

The message that sparked the conversation ... For Such a Downer.

Nothing takes the fun out of a party like a “Debbie Downer“. Sometimes we can ignore them, other times it’s not that easy. Join the conversation as we talk about Genesis 21, downers, and freedom.

Discussion Questions

  1. What is something that automatically puts you in a good mood?

  2. What about something that can put you in a bad mood just as quickly?

  3. What makes someone a "downer"?

  4. What's the difference between being a "downer" and "being realistic" or "telling it like it is"?

  5. Genesis 21 is sort of a "downer." After waiting 25 years for God to keep his promise, Abraham and Sarah have a son. But now they must deal with Hagar and Ishmael. Listening to this chapter, what stands out to you (interests, puzzles, raises questions, or gets your attention)?

  6. What do you come to know more deeply about the God of Jesus from this chapter?

  7. How is this good news for you?

  8. What do you want to share about this with people in your household, church, or community?
