It is my heart’s desire to see our congregation move pass the typical conversations that exist at church. Yes, we greet each other, ask how each other is doing. There’s the – “Hey, what about the Lions?” And its ok to talk about such but we must move beyond surface level speech to real spiritual talk. What am I talking about? Here are some questions to start a spiritual conversation.
How did you first come to Christ?
What’s one thing you’ve discovered recently in your devotions?
How would you describe your walk with God lately?
What’s a passage of Scripture that has been particularly meaningful to you recently?
How has the church helped in your spiritual development?
What do you need from me to help you continue to grow in Christ?
How can I really pray for you?
What’s a joy you’re experiencing in life right now? What particular struggle are you facing?
Try one or two of these. Listen. Care. There’s more to Christian fellowship than talking about the weather or your latest shopping bargain. “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,” Heb 10:24.
