March 3, 2019: Cross and Glory

Discussion Questions

What do you think or feel when you see a cross?

What does “take up your cross” mean to you?

Do you feel closer to God or farther from God when things are difficult?

Have you ever had a “mountaintop” experience?  What was it like?

 

Acting on the Word

Use a cross or a crucifix as a focus for prayer this week.  Hold or gaze at a cross for at least 10 minutes, prayerfully reflecting on the meaning of the cross in your life
