DRAWING CONNECTIONS: We often view hope as nothing more than wishful thinking. How does the Christian hope differ from this conventional way of thinking about hope?
MAKE IT PERSONAL: Read Ephesians 4:25-32. What are some specific ways that following Jesus causes us to be or look “strange” to others? What are the “strangest” qualities of a follower of Christ in our world today?
NAVIGATING CULTURE: How do we navigate being strange and yet still relatable?
POSSIBILITIES: Imagine what our community would look like if the church contained transformed people who loved as Christ loved. How might our city look different?
