What we are learning: All Access This is our MSM Small Group series immediately following Easter this year (April22-May7, 2017).
At concerts there is also a velvet rope that only special people will all-access passes can cross. Maybe you’ve felt the same way when it comes to God. Sure, you come to church and sing songs or listen, but it’s almost like there’s a velvet rope around certain parts of our faith that tells us those parts are restricted to church-staff people or to super-spiritual people. But what if that’s never what God intended? In this series we’ll explore what the Resurrection of Jesus really meant— for real people like us. And, we’ll discover that, because of Easter, we have an all-access pass to Him and to the life He has for us.
Starting a conversation:
1) What does it mean to you that Jesus had the power to overcome death and come back to life?
2) This week, try texting them or writing a simple note to let them know you’re available to them. It doesn’t have to be long or emotional. Try something like this: Hey, I heard you’ve been talking about “all access” at church. I know sometimes it may not feel like you have or need all-access to me, but I want you to know that you can talk to me about anything, anytime. No pressure to start today. Just wanted you to know. Honestly, you may not get a response. That’s okay. The goal is to simply re-give them permission to talk to you on their time and when they’re ready.
