5-Minute Meditations on the Sermon on the Mount (Chapter 10 & 11 of WHAT ON EARTH? a book by Barney Wiget)

Suggestions for Personal Reflection, Group Discussion, and Taking Action for:

Chapters 10 & 11 of WHAT ON EARTH? / The Groan of the Godly & The Collective “Ouch!”

  • Explain how the first Beatitude leads to the second.
  • We contend that tears shed in grief, uncertainty, confusion, and fear can be “good tears.” Agree or disagree? Why?
  • Where else in the Bible do you find “lament” practiced or advocated?
  • Have you ever felt like I did when, after some national tragedy, the Sunday worship service gave no opportunity to grieve with your fellow worshippers?
  • In the world today, what causes you to mourn most?

Keep an eye out for Chapter 12!

Talk soon.
