Today, October 3rd, was our first online and in-person meeting together.
Ryan Pitt and his mother Cindy were our Zoom hosts.
The theme was Speak With Integrity Job 1:1;2:1-10
Do humans worship God only to receive?
We had a discussion time and the 3 following questions were posed to us:
1. Who in your community, family, or neighborhood has suffered unjustly? Some responses were: People with disabilities, refugees ie:Nepalese and folks from Buton. People of color.
2. What would the world be like if the righteous always were rewarded and sinners always were punished? How would Jesus’ story be different?
Jesus' story is different! He accepts the righteous and the sinner.
3. As you grow in your relationship with God, what do you see as the hard questions that need to be answered regarding the nature of God?
God's nature is love. God loves unconditionally. We were made in the image of God and need to be like God and love unconditionally. We sang a couple more hymns and closed with prayer.
