Questions for Discussion and Reflection

  1. Each Christian tradition endeavours to bring us closer to God, through Christ, in the Spirit. Paul warns us not to use divisions as a way to separate Christ; indeed, Christ has not been divided. How can our differences strengthen our faithfulness?
  2. The imagery in John 15:5 of a vine and branches is a powerful one. Take some time to reflect on what that vine-and-branches imagery might look like in or for your community. Is it different across communities?
  3. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the interconnectedness of our lives – for example, the crucial importance of migrant farm workers, workers in food delivery and grocery stores, and other food industry workers, for our safety and well-being. How do our choices affect the lives of others?
