Discussion Questions for Gathering At God's Table

Traveling Light

  1. What baggage needs to be unloaded by our communities-and society at large-in order to break down the prejudice that underlies injustice? How can you personally travel more lightly to come closer to God and others?


Sharing the Wealth

  1. What are you doing at the very local level to feed the hungry? What can you do at larger scales, through your work as a citizen-in advocacy with legislators, organizing with others, and with your vote?


Living in Joyful Hope

  1. What signs of hope for a transformed world-both large and small-have you encountered?

and Sustain and Renew the Life of the Earth

One Body

  1. What bodies are you a member of? Which ones need healing? Where do you see allergic reactions to other members of those bodies?


In the Garden

  1. Where have you seen the glory of God passing by? What garden are you being called to work in?


Healing the Body of God

  1. Where do you see the body of God in need of healing? Where might you look for partners in that work?


Transforming the Planet

  1. What sorts of organizing are needed to address the differential vulnerabilities in our cities? What can you be doing in your own city?


Networks for the Future

  1. Where are you discovering connections you were unaware of last year, or five years ago? How is that growing interdependence a gift for the transformation of God's world toward shalom? Who needs to be part of your ongoing discovery?
