REFLECT:

  • Abe stated the vertical reason for joining a DNA group is that “I love Jesus, I need to be transformed, and transformation happens in community.” What about that sentence resonates with you and what’s difficult?
  • Abe also stated the horizontal reason for joining a DNA group is: “Because I love other people, I want to serve them by caring for, shepherding, and speaking truth in their lives because they need to be transformed.” What about that sentence resonates with you and what’s difficult?
  • What are some compelling reasons for being part of a DNA group, and what causes you hesitation? Are there areas you need to hear truth in love into those hesitations?
