Where Faith Meets Life
Share your highs and lows (best and hardest part) of the week.

How would you explain our theme, The Ripple Effects of Faith?

Of the five stones listed which one feels the most natural for you to live out? Which one feels the most challenging? Why? Is there a faith value you would add to the list?

When have you been positively impacted by the ripples of another person? What about negatively?

Does knowing that your decisions have a ripple effect on others change the choices you make? Why or why not?
If you believe it...
are you living it?
How would you answer the question, if you believe it...are you living it? Are you putting your faith values into action?

Do you think your faith influences the decisions you make each day? Why or why not?

Share a time when your faith influenced a decision you made. What ripple was put into action as a result?

In the past week, how have you been impacted by someone else's choices?

Select an action item off the back of the Faith Practice Card to intentionally start a ripple this week.
Close with a Blessing
(Choose one of the following or create your own!)

1) Ask God to continue to bless each other and remind one another that God loves them.

2) May the Lord bless you and keep you; may the Lord’s face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; may the Lord look upon you with favor, and give you peace.

3) Make the sign of the cross and say, (fill in name of person being blessed), child of God, remember you are marked with the cross of Christ and sealed by the Holy Spirit.
