Yesterday, we had our monthly afternoon service. We purposefully try to make it a different format to the morning service. Instead of systematically preaching through a book of the Bible, we take a theological topic, watch a relevant video and then break into small groups to discuss some questions. We come back together for a plenary feedback session and then we do the whole thing a second time to push our thinking a bit further.
This Sunday we took a (very) brief look at families. Here is what we did:
- In what areas does the Bible say issues of headship/submission exist? §Ephesians 5:22-31; 1 Corinthians 11:1-16; 1 Timothy 2:8-15
- Specifically in relation to husbands and wives, how do we think this relationship ought to work itself out in our homes?
- What is hard to hear about this teaching (especially in our culture)? Why, despite this, might we call it good and beautiful?
- Why should we try to lead our families in worship?
- What are some of the benefits of leading family worship? What are some of the difficulties in doing this?
- What will you do to start family worship in your home?
