Read 1 Timothy 4:11-16 with our students this morning. After small group discussions, asked each group to compile a list of three ways that we could implement practical things on Sunday mornings that would help each of us to live more like the way that Paul implored and encouraged Timothy to live from the passage.
Here are the raw results:
Silent confession and meditation
Participate in discussion
Communicate with the older crowd
Find community service opportunity
Discuss and elaborate [on] scripture
Youth lead Sunday school
10 min focus on real life application of scripture
Church spirit days
Be God's hands and feet
Don't let anyone tell you you can't
I'm going to let these sink in a bit and then follow up with a few of my initial thoughts.
