As we continue in the season of Lent, Matt Inman reflects on how our faith intersects with our belonging [Romans 4:13-17].
- What parts of your story might need to be honored more for you to feel a greater sense of belonging?
- What kinds of new conversations do you long for? Who in your life do you trust enough to allow them to interrupt you?
- Journal through these three questions. Where have you felt loving connection with your parents/guardians? Where might your parents struggled to know how to love you? Imagine what acceptance and belonging might have looked like in those spaces.
- Conversation. Have a conversation with a friend or a colleague about where fear of punishment finds its way into your faith, thoughts, relationships and dreams.
