For discussion

December 11, 2012 | Feature | Number 24

1. Wendy and Phil Reimer describe some instances when God intervened in the lives of Christians. Can you think of similar experiences that you or other Christians have had? Why might they be difficult to talk about?

2. When do you most feel the presence of God? How do we distinguish between the still, small voice of God and our own thoughts and emotions? Can God lead us even if we are not aware of it?

3. What are the lessons to be learned from Phil Reimer’s grandfather’s stories? What do you think Phil means when he says, “how we live and what we commit to affects what holds our feet to the figurative fire”?

4. Do you find these stories helpful in your faith journey? How important is it to encourage each other to share such experiences? What is the best format to do this?
