                Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
                  do not fret when men succeed in their ways,
                   when they carry out their wicked schemes.
                                         Psalm 37:7


 God of compassion and love, teach us to deal with anger when it arises by
 keeping before us the love you have revealed by both the words and ac-
 tions of your Son, Jesus. In our words and deeds, help us to be more like
 Him, in whose Name we pray. Amen

Introduction - Back to Church –

Discuss the concept of a Back to Church Sunday.

What have been some of the benefits (to the church / those who

What could we as a church have done better?

The Bible Study

God’s love for us

Rex quoted John 3.16 – a great text for newcomers, but spend a few minutes
(concordance might help) to discover, read and discuss other related, verses
about God’s love. (List at foot of 2nd page if you don’t find any)

Have there been times when you have been uncertain about – even doubted
God’s love? If asked by your leader, briefly tell others in your group of your con-
cerns – explain how you came through your doubts. Seek help if you haven’t

 Our love for God – and others.

The text from Luke 10.27 (Deut. 6.5, Lev.9.18) should have been (and probably
was) well known to the expert of the law. He asked Jesus, Who is my neighbor?
Write down a question you would ask Jesus about this commandment. Discuss
possible answer (to yours and others ?) with group.

Whose neighbor are you? was the question Neil left us. Consider for a few mo-
 ments a person who for whatever reason, you aren’t a neighbor too. Given you
 can do little to change that person, what could you do to remedy the situation and
 be a neighbor (as the Samaritan in the parable) to him or her.
 (For confidentiality – don’t write names)

 Blockages to loving others

Rex acknowledged difficulties with concept of neighbor embracing all people and
mentioned a number of possible blockages we might need to overcome. These
were f___, p________, d______ , l_________ and a____ with lack of

Discuss. How might each get in the way of our love for neighbor?

Anger (with unforgiveness) can be a challenge for the most devout Christian. Dis-
cuss Psalm 37.7’s three principles for dealing with mounting anger;

 Be still before the Lord.

 Wait! (see also Romans 12.9-21),

 Do not fret .
