The Gathering

This section provides follow-up opportunities for Wayne Schmidt’s presentation at The Gathering 2011 entitled “I’VE GOT A QUESTION.” Included for each of the six questions arising out of the book of Ephesians are YouTube videos for personal or group viewing, reflection guides that can be used personally during devotional time or as a basis for discussion with others, and sermon starters based on the passages in Ephesians from which the questions arise.

These resources could be utilized separately, or used together for an all-church emphasis in a season such as Lent, which is often dedicated to self-examination. If used collectively, the sermon starters could provide the beginning of messages for each weekend, followed by congregants either personally or in groups viewing the videos and reflecting on the guides.
