Field Guide For Troubled Times: Rest For Our Souls

Community Questions

  1. Sometimes our feelings and emotions can sneak up on us and surprise us. During this season of crisis, what are some of the emotions that have been coming to the surface? Anger? Sadness? Fear? Anxiety? Share with someone.
  2. The Bible teaches that our soul is our whole person – not just the spiritual part of our lives, but our bodies and emotions. Why do you think integrating and understanding our whole body and mind into our spiritual growth so important?
  3. Psalm 131:1 speaks of a humility to not have to know and understanding everything. In these times, what kind of healthy boundaries would help you being informed in a healthy way by the news/social media – not engrossed within it?
  4. Through rest, God restores us and renews our soul. What is something you can do during this season that restores you? Exercise? Reading? Gardening? Creativity? How might you carve out time this week to join God’s restoring work in you?

Community Practice

Sabbath. Even though it’s difficult to know up from down during this crisis, setting apart a Sabbath to rest and be restored by God is essential in this season! This week, look at your schedule throughout the week and mark out a time to rest. Stop producing and working about participate with God in the restoration of your souls. Over the last year, we’ve had 4 messages on Sabbath and rest. Go deeper here!
