Listener Questions to James:
Denise asked how to you avoid forming cliques when you form a small group?
Joe's Deeper Dive Questions to James:
James, you always wear a tie, why didn't you wear a tie this week? Why this title and why this topic? Why is this a difficult topic? Why do so many Christians and Seventh-day Adventists in particular feel alone when they're in church? Why did you use that photo illustration as your sermon cover? Why did you say the biggest item in the church budget should be food? Why did food play such a critical role in Jesus ministry? What does it mean to be an intentional disciple? Why did you pick the illustration of Linda? Can you expand on the personal testimonials that you received by Larry and Mike?
