Galatians Week 4





Week 4 of six weeks studying Galatians!







Study Questions Week 4
  1. Abba doesn't just mean daddy. It has a sense of ownership built into the word. It's "my daddy" God belongs to us and we belong to him. 
    1. Spend some time this week in a quiet space and pray this breath prayer
      1. Breathe in "Abba"
      2. Breathe out "I belong to you"
    2. Contemplate how God loves you and wants the best for you. If you have the time and desire, memorize the scripture from Jeremiah 29:12-14
  2. When Paul showed up in Galatia, he wasn't feeling too well but they didn't let that stop them from hearing the good news he had to share. We can learn something from everyone we encounter if we take the time to do so. 
    1. Think of one person in your life that is amazing at something you would like to know more about how to do. Contact them and see if they will give you a lesson.
  3. Paul says in verse 18 "It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good, and to be so always..." 
    1. Define the word zeal.
    2. What are you zealous for? Is it for a good purpose? Have you lost your zeal? 
      1. Find your zeal this week and act upon it.
  4. Read the story of Hagar and Sarah (Genesis 16 & 21). 
    1. Take a moment and try to imagine yourself as Hagar and then Sarah. 
    2. Share any insights that you get with the group or in the comments below.
  5. Week 4 challenge: Come up with an example in your own life of a law that you used to be a slave to but have now found freedom in Christ. Thank God for that freedom, even if it was won a long time ago or just today. Share your freedom with others.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti
