Transforming Journeys

Series: Sunday Sermons

January 02, 2022 | Liz Junod

Passages: Matthew 2:1-15

Scripture/Sermon Discussion

Opening Prayer: At the start of each day, help me to recognize you, gracious God above all else. Enlighten the eyes of my heart that I might see you, and notice how you're at work in my life. Give me wisdom to do good. Let your Spirit and power breathe in me, through me, again, fresh and new. Amen.

  • What resonated the most with you about the scripture? 
  • What spoke to you in the sermon?
  • Have you ever had what might be called an "Epiphany"? If so, did you feel changed or called to reach out beyond yourself?
  • Do you agree that it is difficult to "bow down and pay homage" as an act of faith?  Why or why not?

Closing Prayer: As I move out into my week, may I continue to shine my Light into the places where it is most needed. In Christ’s name, Amen.
