A Short Walk with Emma

Out of a father’s grieving journals, this book details the story of how God used the sweet life and sudden death of a young daughter to teach a father, a couple, an extended family and a community vital life lessons. This reflection will give the reader snapshots into the final days and hours of Emma’s life and death, while grounding them in a heavenly perspective as her circumstances unfold. In the end, what was written to help a young father come to terms with his deep sadness has resulted in eight specific lessons about life, which are beneficial to all who are seeking wisdom during challenging times.
BIG IDEA: When we RELATE WELL, we hold the rope well
May you jump into the arms of Jesus.
And may He push you out into the world.
May you be healed as you participate in the healing of others.
Not because you must, but because you may.
This is why we were born!
Beyond Sunday
The Book of Acts details the start of the early church. In this seven-week series, we will call ourselves to strive toward our six PCC values as we are inspired by those who did the same as they established the Church. And if we do so, both individually and corporately, we will experience freedom and become a part of His glorious movement in a needy world. This week we reflect on how relating well can change our world.

1. What has been one of the best relationships in your life and why? What are the characteristics of this relationship that stand out to you?

2. Reflect on Paul's three key relationships which were life changing for him and those around him: Barnabas in Acts 9:27 and 11:25, Silas in Acts 15:40, and Timothy in Acts 16:1-4.

3. Based on our big idea this week: “When we relate well, we hold the rope well with others,” who have been your upline (mentors), sameline (peers), and downline (mentees) relationships that you have valued most and why?

4. In Hebrews 13:3, how does Paul’s call to deal with those who are strangers (offline) cause you frustration or direction? And why do you think at times we are so harsh with those who are different from us?

5. If relating well is holding the rope well, rank which of these relating well practices (HELP) come natural to you or are difficult?
Humility Philippians 2:3-4
Empathy Galatians 6:1
Listening James 1:9
Peacemaking Ephesians 4:3
--Grace & Truth John 1:14
--Forgiveness Colossians 3:13

6. Who or what is God calling you to when it comes to the value of Relate Well?
