SPARK Talks 2019: Week 5

How often are you experiencing happiness? Meghan Pope shares how she finds joy regardless of her circumstances. Lena Schuler talks about having a meaningful life. Is it magic, math, or myth? Brian Tome talks about how you can have a prosperous life.

Process, journal or discuss the themes of this article - here's a few questions to get the ball rolling...

Welcome to the Chaser—a few questions after the weekend service to start conversations. If this is your first time in a group, or your group has new members, take a few minutes and introduce yourself. Two truths and a lie is always a good place to start.

  1. What’s the best (or worst) advice you’ve received? Share it with your group.

  2. It’s community weekend here at Crossroads—so people in this group may have heard different depending on where you saw service. (Wild, eh?) Who did you hear speak this weekend, and what stuck out to you? Some follow up questions: What about the message did you agree or disagree with, and why? If you had to make one personal change based on what you heard, what would it be?

  3. What does prosperity mean to you? And how have you defined it in your life?

  4. Painful. Pointless. Pitiful. Prosperous. Chart where you are on the Purpose and Play matrix that Brian shared. Then, tell you group where you put yourself and why.

  5. It’s your turn to take the Spark stage. If you had a few minutes to share a story from your life that would benefit others, what would it be? Now, deep breath. Share it with your group.


If you’ve got vacation days, use ‘em. This week, get with your people and a calendar. Plan out when you can use your vacation days to the fullest!
