Discussion Questions

Are you a neat freak, a slob, or somewhere in between?  Why do you think this is?

What practices were you taught as a child were “improper,” “impure,” “defiling” or “not done”?  How do you feel about those things now?

Describe a time you felt unwelcome or judged because of your traditions or practices?

What is the difference between traditions and traditionalism?

Acting on the Word

Talk to a friend from a different Christian denomination or even a different faith.  What traditions and/or practices in that tradition are meaningful to them?
