Questions to Connect Around:

  1. How is having a Christian world- and life-view tied to thinking biblically about all of life?
  2. Consider the current pulpit ministry, Christian Education and Women’s Ministry curriculum of your church: Is there as systematic strategy to help equip the women of your church to build a Christian-world-and-life grid to think biblically? What has worked well? What is missing?
  3. Abraham Kuyper said, “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!” In other words there should be no dichotomy between the sacred and the secular in our lives.  What are some of the unintended consequences of allowing this kind of thinking in your life and the lives of the women you serve?
