When the Dead Live Group Study

Welcome to the study of When The Dead Live. My name is Connie Jakab and I am an urban missionary living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. For the past 10 years, I have been dwelling among urban artists in my city; eating with them, creating theatre with them, jamming with them, and doing life with them. When I first stepped out from the safety of the four walls of my church to live among such as these, to say it was a shock is an understatement. I knew everything I needed to know about the theology of the gospel but I had a very hard time translating it to my new mission field. This study is to help you, and those in your church know the gospel of Jesus that is still very much relevant to the people in your world today.

SESSION TWO: The Most Powerful Way To Share Christ

SESSION TWO: The Most Powerful Way To Share Christ
This is based on the chapter “Healed”

There is no shortage of pain in the world. We often don’t know what to do with pain, or where our faith fits with it. Do we know what to say to people who have experienced great tragedy and loss? Why do bad things happen to good people? Is this the gospel? Let’s learn together.

Watch the Video “The Most Powerful Way to Share Christ” and discuss the following ….

1. Have you ever wrestled with God through a painful experience? What did it look like? Or have you buried your grief deep down covering your pain with the right Christian answers?

2. What did God do in your life through it?

3. Have you ever found yourself in conversations where you felt you needed to defend God or justify why bad things happen?

4. What do you want people around you to do when you’re going through a hard time?

5. Have you considered the power of your story being a testimony for God?

Share a story from your life where God has been there in the midst of your pain. Take time to pray for one another.
