Advent Questions for Reflection
Set aside 50 minutes with your small group. Watch the video together. Then discuss questions such as the following, or others that feel relevant to your community. 1) Does it surprise you to see a church so focused on its members’ economic lives? Why or why not? 2) In your experience, how do the ways we handle money express our spiritual and ethical beliefs? 3) Do you see exploitative economic practices (e.g., predatory loans) happening in your community? In what ways do you consider this a justice issue? 4) How do you seek to balance traditional devotional practices with working for justice? In your experience, how do the two support each other? 5) Before you finish in prayer, ask what new possibilities you see, based on today’s discussion.
