Good to have you join us for our leaders meeting last Sunday afternoon. From the reports, I’m glad to hear about your progress in 1 Samuel.
This week is a tough assignment with three chapters!
Here is the Word Dwell Richly recorded chat with Pip and I concerning the questions below.
In our questions below, I’ve provided some extra detail (as Ciaron requests) on page 2 for leaders.
I’ve also sought to find extra summarising / commentary-like help. St. Helen’s Bishopsgate in London have produced some worthwhile material that gets at the central author’s purpose. I’ve included below a link to the whole lot, as well as a pdf of just the relevant section for this week.
Thanks for your group reports. Hope you & your groups have made a positive start into 1 Samuel. We’re starting to get into the vivid details this week.
Find below the questions I’ve prepared. Even as I attach these, I can think of how this study might be taken in an equally valid yet slightly different direction. The point being: if you think you can come up with different / better questions – by all means do so!
Pip and I have talked through these questions:
Go well this week: may God’s word dwell richly among you!
Welcome back for Term 3 and to our new series in 1 Samuel.
I hope in the last fortnight you’ve had a chance to refresh in some way, such that you’re ready and raring to resuming meeting next week. For our part, our week in Kaikoura last week was marvelous – especially seeing the sun rise over the ocean and light up the snow capped ranges. Just beautiful.
Attached are the questions I’ve written for our groups next week.
Below is a link to a 20 min conversation introducing 1 Samuel as well as explaining the questions I’ve written for our groups. Hope this is helpful.
