Claiming Our Gifts – Week 2

Today is the second session of the “Claiming Our Gifts” learning series on Wednesday nights (August 9th, 16th, and 23rd at 6:00pm).  If you are unable to participate in the class, these videos and discussion questions are for you to use at home or with family/friends.  Did you miss week one?  CLICK HERE for that video and lesson.

This week we will look at Parts 2 & 3 on Theology and Practices:

Watch the Part 2 and reflect on the following question:  Are the theological gifts of grace, paradox, and the cross central to your understanding and proclamation of the gospel?  (comment on our facebook page: )

Watch Part 3 and reflect on the following question:  Which of the practices mentioned are present in our congregation and which need to be reclaimed and used in different ways?   (comment on our facebook page: )

Closing Prayer (Martin Luther’s Evening Prayer):

I give thanks to you, heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ your dear Son, that you have graciously protected me today.  I ask you to forgive me all my sins, where I have done wrong, and graciously to protect me tonight.  Into your hands I commend myself: my body, my soul, and all that is mine.  Let your holy angel be with me, so that the wicked foe may have no power over me. Amen.
