Conversation starters

·       When it comes to responding to disaster, are you more like Chicken Little or the camp counselor chasing a bear?

·       How does your anger and anxiety get in the way of a productive response to the disasters you face?

·       What do you think about John’s definition of wealth as having two coats?

·       Share any experience you have had as an outcast.

·       What does it mean to you that you can find the Messiah “sitting among the poor covered with wounds”?

·       Discuss the Messiah’s response to disaster: “We join the poor, we are authentic with our wounds, and we save the lame and gather the outcast.”
