- Begin your time together by asking people to share a favourite bible passage and explain why they like it and/or what it means for them. Depending on the size of your group you may like to ask everyone to share, or just a few people.
- Spend some time in prayer, dialoguing with God about the things people have said.
- Not all of us are called to be missionaries, but do you know how and where Jesus is leading you at the moment? (Consider different aspects of your life – for example your relationships, where you live, where you work, who you support in prayer, who you support financially, how you spend your time etc)
- How has reading the bible influenced you to be led by God? (Can you think of specific examples?)
Read Genesis 11: 1-9, Acts 7:9-10 and Revelation 7:9-10
- What are the connections between these passages?
- In what way is the scattering of people at Babel an act of grace by God?
- We live in the space between Acts 2 and Revelation 7. How does the vision in Revelation impact the way you live now?
- The church in Acts 2 had a powerful experience of the Holy Spirit. What do you make of this for our church today? What is your experience of the Holy Spirit?
- Finish by praying for Steve and Narelle, the church in Oenpelli and for the ongoing work of bible translation. Also spend some time praying for where God is leading you personally and where He is leading us as a church here in Rozelle and Balmain.
