Discussion starters from sermon/message


1. Why might “going into all the world” include remote places like Mount Solitary?

2. How might wilderness inform faith?

3. “Feeling small” is important to Mel. What are your thoughts about that?

4. Might Jesus have gone to Mount Solitary?



Lots of God stuff happens on mountains, but maybe only if they are hard to get to. And not all the God stuff is pleasant. Just ask the bewildered, doubtful disciples, and Jesus in the garden at the foot of the mountain. Despite the risks, let's take time to journey to the mountain - literally or metaphorically- to meet God.  With Jason John.



Jason and his kids made this movie just for fun after watching "Dude vs wild" on youtube. Maybe it's just silly. Maybe there is a lesson in it for all of us this mountain Sunday. If you find one, let us know by leaving a comment on youtube! We're stumped.
