Galatians Week 6








Week 6 of our Galatians Study! Wrapping up just in time for Advent! Join us in the Bible Study with Tina Facebook group to get some daily encouragement, two words Facebook Live!







Study Questions Week 6


  1. What does it mean to restore someone gently? 
    1. Is there a time that you can think of that someone has restored you gently? Take some time to write down all the things that you remember about that time. In what way did the person approach you? How did they make you feel? Was there an action that they encouraged you to take to correct your behavior/thought?
  2. Do you have people in your life that help carry your burden? Give them a word of thanks, this week. And look for someone that you can come alongside to help with their burden. It can be physical (like holding a door open), spiritual (praying for someone), emotional (being present in their grief or celebration). 
  3. Paul says in verse 7 God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 
    1. Take some time to examine your actions lately and see if you've been a fair-weather friend to God. If so, take the time and effort to reconnect.
    2. We can't plant green beans and then be upset when it's harvest time and there are no tomatoes. We only get back a return on what we invest. What have you been investing lately?
  4. Paul talks often in his letters about being crucified to the world. It's easy to think that if we just remove ourselves from the world or reduce its influence on us then we will be able to become righteous. In verse 15, Paul reminds us that circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything. Whether we are fully focused on gaining the world or a hermit living in a cave closing our eyes to the world, we are focused on the wrong thing, the world. What is one step you can take this week to put your focus on God and becoming a new creation?
  5. Challenge of the week: Take some time each morning with your daily plan and lay it down before God and ask what things you should add and take away.

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.

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. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Threadbare Knees

I feel sure that you've heard the saying "If life gives you lemons, make lemonade."  Well, recently I picked up a pair of wool cashmere blend slacks from Salvation Army and upon further inspection at home, the knees were threadbare, practically holes.  Easy enough to miss, when your knees don't fall in the same spot as the previous owner.  They were inexpensive, so it wasn't a big monetary loss, but I felt like it would be a shame to toss such nice fabric and so I searched the internet to see what I could do.  I found this cute little purse pattern, for free!   You can go check it out by clicking here . It is a great little pattern and I was able to make the entire purse in one rainy day!  Here are some pictures of my threadbare knees purse. Don't you just love those little pleats? And there's even a little pocket inside.  I'm so impressed with myself! Time to fill it up with my keys and such non-sense! And remember, when life gives you th
