Huddle/Week of 8-25-19
Huddle time is an opportunity for you to connect to each other and grow in faith. The below questions are just a resource for you to use or start from. Don’t feel like you have to use them all or rush through good discussion.
What are interactions that you used to have with people that have been replaced by digital/technology? (Example: Grocery shopping online)
What are the benefits of the new tech? What are the negative sides of it?
What do we miss?
There are studies that show cell phone/social media usage being linked to higher rates of depression and loneliness.
Do you have limits for your screen/device usage?
If you have children, do you set limits for them? If so, why and what are they?
One study shows that, on average, we spend 3 hours and 15 minutes a day on our phones. What would you say is a reasonable amount of screen time for adults per day? What about kids?
How can we cultivate a “we mentality” instead of a “me mentality”?
Read Acts 2:42-47
What does this passage teach us about what is important to God and his design for community?
Community requires that we Wake Up: recognize the need for bing in community with others; Show Up: when you recognize a need, act on it; Build Up: see people the way God sees them and let that influence your interactions.
Do you have an example of when someone in your life did these things for you?
What are some of the reasons we struggle to live this out?
Is there anyone you are being intentional with doing these things? If not, pray about who God may be leading you to invest in and show His love to.
