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.

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
