Whether you are NEW online or visiting one of our campuses, we would love to get a chance to know you.
Conversation Starters help us dig deeper, connecting Sunday’s sermons with our Monday lives. These prompts have been designed to help Community Groups grow in their relationship with God, with one another, and with their neighbors. Please know that these questions are meant to be a resource to you. You do not have to follow them verbatim or get through them all. We trust you to know your group and to ask the questions based on your group needs.

1) What stood out to you in the sermon?

2) David finishes his Psalm by calling himself to take courage. Tim defined courage as the readiness to risk everything at what hope in God requires next. What is your reaction to that definition?

3) Why do you think we tend toward positivity as a culture instead of courage? What would you say is the difference between positivity and courage?

4) What next step are you being called to take in light of this sermon? Where is God calling you to grow in courage?

Title: Restore My Courage
Scripture: Psalm 27
Speaker: Tim Spanburg,
"Here is as great an adventure as ever I heard of…" - Reepicheep, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
>> Why life with God requires courage
>> Life with God...requires courage...What is it?
"The idea that we are all supposed to be positive all the time has become an American obsession. It gives us momentum and purpose to feel like the best is yet to come. But the problem is when it becomes a kind of poison, in which it expects that people who are suffering - which is pretty much everyone right now - are somehow always supposed to find their silver lining or not speak realistically about their circumstances...If I see one more millionaire on Instagram yell that she is choosing joy, while selling journals in which stay-at-home moms are supposed to write joy mantras, I am going to lose my mind!" - Kate Bowler
>> How do we become people of courage?
