Preparation for Advance 2020
In order for us to get the most from our time together we have assembled some Scripture readings, questions and other resources about Joy. Our reflections will be discussed and prayed through during our morning sessions. Please join other registrants and prepare your heart and mind in advance of Advance.
Take some time to explore the ideas of joy, joyful expectation and the intersection of these with the mission of God.
View the following video from the Bible Project on joy:
Read the following passages:
Acts chapters 1, 2, 4, 5, 16, 20
Consider the following questions:
- What is your experience of joy?
- In the passages above, where do you see evidence of joy or references to joy?
- What is the connection between joy and hardship?
- How does one cultivate joy? How is this related to the presence of God?
