Questions to Ponder:

1. When you think of Remembrance Day, what comes to your mind? Do you have any difficulty connecting it to our Christian faith and practice?

2. During the sermon, we heard “if we do not recall the fundamental hope that is enshrined in the Christian Gospel-there will be no hope”. Do you agree with that statement? What does it mean to you?

3. In Romans 8:31-39, Paul asks five questions about our faith memory. Let’s reflect on them again. It will be helpful for you to have your Bible’s open to this passage.

4. Can you think of a time when you felt weak, but saw God’s strength working through you? How did it change things?
a) What then are we to say about these things – the tough things we are trying to remember? (v. 31)
b) Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? (v. 33)
c) Who then will condemn us? (v. 34)
d) Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (v. 35)
e) Will we persevere & overcome? Is there hope? (vv. 37-39)

Closing Prayer:
Loving God, open our ears to hear your word and draw us closer to you, that the whole world may be one with you as you are one with us in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
