How has your faith grown since the Cohort has been meeting? Has the Cohort helped your faith grow or hindered it?
What is your relationship with God like right now? Is it deeper or more distant than when we began meeting?
Important to many of us is the freedom to speak openly on all ideas and views. Have you personally experienced resolution to any of the questions/ideas we have discussed? Have you found answers that you believe are right for you? Have you been able to reclaim any of the beliefs that you originally questioned? If so, what are specific examples where you have lived out a belief recently?
What do you want your relationship with God to become? Are you moving towards this?
To Jesse’s comment… “The purpose is to grow in our faith together…to try to live more like Jesus – together” Do you believe we are living more like Jesus together? Can you give some examples of how you see us doing this?
To Eve’s comment, “I would also love that through these meetings I would feel closer to God whether it be that I am accepting a deeper Truth than before or because I'm wrestling with Him with something.” Is that happening now? Or is it something you want to happen in the future?
What example would you give of something that has challenged you to change--To become better?
To Scot’s comment, “Establishing a common context is HARD work. Are we up for it?” Scot, if common context is not a priority for everyone, do you have additional ideas for another way forward?”
To Jacqui’s comment, “I do think we can be more intentional about how we communicate our assumptions and how we interact over our differences as things come up.” To what end? What do you see happening as this plays out?
