Explore the truth: He is alive
As you begin to gather as a Circle, take this time to share food and drink and discuss any questions you have been reflecting on. These three questions may help to start your discussion.
Christ is alive! If we let Jesus become merely a historical figure, then faith in Him would leave us unchanged: it would not set us free. Rather, humanities history is His-story of love.
The one who fills us with His grace, the one who liberates, transforms, heals and consoles us is fully alive. He is risen from the dead, alive. He can be present in your life at every moment. Even if all others leave, He will stay. He fills your life with his unseen presence; wherever you go, He will be waiting. He comes to you in the present, inviting you to new horizons.
See Jesus as overflowing with joy. Rejoice with him as a friend. He went to the cross, but He triumphed in the end. Evil does not have the last word. With Him, the end is just the beginning.
Today, open your heart to this message of life. Open yourself to an encounter with the Lord, let him love and save you today. Speak with Jesus about the realities of your life. For it is in this relationship with Christ that your life will find its true meaning and purpose.
