House group questions on John 11:1-44

Housegroup questions on John 11:1-44 As always, please just choose the questions which you think are most appropriate for your group. Duncan pointed out that many of us have had experiences like Martha and Mary’s – we called out to God in a time of need, and there seemed to be no answer; we were aware only of God’s absence. Some members of the group may wish to talk about their experiences of this: what did God’s silence ‘feel like’;

Accepting our mortality
John at Cromarty

This morning’s service was about Jesus as ‘the resurrection and the life’ (John 11:25)  Some of us, Duncan said, would not have had much experience of people close to us dying; others, because of age, would be much more familiar with this unwelcome visitor. But Duncan encouraged us to gently reflect on our own mortality – we would, he said, find it helpful. I think he’s right – it’s often the case than when someone receives a terminal

Jesus – the Resurrection and the Life: report of Duncan’s sermon this morning

Today, Duncan was preaching on John 11:1-44, rather than the passage which was announced. John  11 tells the story of Jesus’ restoring to life his friend Lazarus, who had died. The raising of Lazarus was the last of the seven ‘sign miracles’ recorded in John’s Gospel through which Jesus’ identity was revealed to those with spiritual discernment. In fact, as Duncan pointed out, the actual miracle is described in just a few verses – the

God so loved the world

Housegroup questions on John 3:1-21 Lots of questions here, many of them deep and searching.  Please just choose the ones which you think would be most profitable for the members of your group.  The key thing is that we must never be afraid of asking questions.

Born again by the Spirit; alive in the Spirit: the wonder of Christian life: a report of Duncan’s sermon this morning

Duncan’s sermon this morning was on John 3, a very well-known passage. It tells the story of a night-time conversation between Jesus, and Nicodemus, who was one of the Jewish leaders. Perhaps he came after darkness had fallen because he didn’t want his fellow-Pharisees, who already saw Jesus as ‘trouble’, to find out about his visit. Two memorable statements Among many other memorable verses, the chapter is famous for two: In verse 3, Jesus
