Jesus has many names…Son of God, Prince of Peace, Lord of Lords…and Rabbi…meaning teacher…As a profound teacher and dispenser of wisdom, he often asks both rhetorical and burning questions of those around him. His questions are meant to check back at religious authorities who think they know it all. They are often meant to challenge the culturally expected, and in a beautiful example of forgiveness from the Gospel of John, the resurrected Jesus asks Peter, three times, “Peter do you love me?” The repetition of the question three times was meant to wipe away Peter’s triple denial of Jesus on the night of Jesus’ arrest and betrayal.
Good questions can build relationships, teach us new and unique realities about ourselves and the people we are with, and be a doorway to profound change for an individual and institution.
Your pastors and the Christian Education committee are eager to ask YOU 4 questions about faith and spirituality education offerings at PoP.
As many of you remember, we tried a Sunday morning education offering called FED (Fellowship Education Discipleship). It was an experiment that has ended.
As we look to the years ahead we want to offer faith growth opportunities that are meaningful to you all. We want to know what you want to learn about! And, to be completely honest, we especially are eager to hear from all of you who have never attended a Christian education offering (small group study, Bible Study, retreats, etc etc). Let us know why in our anonymous survey. As staff, we can create the most beautiful class about the hidden meanings in Revelation, but if no one is interested in learning about it then we’re just geeking out as pastors on topics we like! Guide us please!
Here’s the SURVEY LINK
Also, if you despise surveys feel free to email me with what you want to learn about/talk about in this life’s journey!
