This week, we’ll explore the topic “Purity – Being in the World, But Not of It” through readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, songs, prayer, questions, discussion, and the sharing of personal experiences.
Questions to consider:
- In Costa Rica, people will greet each other with the salutation “pura vida” or “pure life.” What does it mean to live “pure life” (or “a pure life”)?
- Does a desire to protect our moral and/or theological purity sometimes lead to isolating ourselves (individually or as a community)?
- How can we better be “in the world, but not of it”?
- How do we take a stand for purity without being judgmental or arrogant?
Thoughts and testimony related to other topics are always welcome as well.
