Pastoral Musings from Rain City

it's about 'what is church?' it's about whether 'emergent' is the latest Christian trend or something more substantial. it's musing on what it means to live faithfully...in the city, in America, in community, intergenerationally, at this time in history...

Law and Spirit - Discussion Questions for Today's Sermon - I Samuel 21-22

1. What does David do right in this story? What is wrong? What is neither right or wrong?

2. Is running from Saul 'right' or does it show a lack of faith? How about David's lying, as he says he's on the king's business? If you were hiding people, would you lie to protect them?

3. How do we make decisions in these ethical matters? And how do we treat each other when we disagree?

Though these questions are used for discussion groups who listen to the sermon (available Tuesday at churchbcc.org), feel free to post answers to any of these questions here as well. We'd all benefit from the discussion.

Richard, did you really post this at 3:11am. Should't you be getting some rest instead of at the computer?

Ahhh... but I'm in Germany, though haven't changed the clock on my computer, so it was actually posted at noon in Europe! Rest happens best when it's dark outside.
