Arborlawn has a great relationship with a ministry in Haiti that helps to provide access to clean drinking water. We send teams to Haiti along with water filters where the team members form relationships with Haitians and teach them how to use the water filters. Rev. Dave Brower has now been to Haiti three times and shared his most recent experience in worship on Sunday using Exodus 17:1-7 where the Israelites cry out for water.
Small Group Questions: Sunday, May 29, 2016
- In reading Exodus 17:1-7 and/or recalling the sermon you listened to, what did you find most interesting or important?
- Have you ever not had access to clean drinking water? Can you imagine what that would be like?
- Has the lack of something ever kept you from being able to experience God? Is the lack of something preventing that now? Can you tell the group about that?
- How do we maintain faith in God when it seems like we aren’t being provided for?
- How can your group provide for those in and outside of your group?
Taking the Next Step of Discipleship
Moses strikes the rock in the midst of a dry desolate wilderness, and life giving water comes gushing forth for the people of Israel. This week tap into the hidden places where life resides beneath the surface. Strike the hard places and break open hardened hearts, believing that a wellspring of life is buried deep inside. How do you do that? Say a word of hope and grace to those who need it most. Offer an act of kindness and compassion to someone who feels like they don’t deserve it. If God is in the wilderness, it means God is everywhere. Sometimes you just have to look deeper.
