1: We said that maintaining supertight community is hard, and that is gets ever harder as we 1) grow bigger and 2) stay together longer. Why would those both be true?
2: What are the implications of a local church being more like a human body (with its wildly disparate members) than a squad of stormtroopers? How could such diversity breed the temptation for some to say to others "we don't need you?" Why would that be so awful?
3: We said that three things that tempt us to speak/think this way toward each other are 1) self-sufficiency 2) elitism 3) annoyance. Which are you most likely to allow to cause you to sin in this way?
4: We said there are three ways we can built a culture where this doesn't happen: 1) Affirm 2) Forgive 3) Forbear Where do have opportunity right now to live out one of more of these?
