Who doesn’t want to be chosen? Whether for the school of your choice, the community sports team, your favorite organization, or just by that special group of friends… being chosen often gives us a rush that affirms that we matter, that we are needed, that we fit in, and that we are special and accepted. And yet, this idea of being chosen and the forms that chosenness takes as it relates to the things of God, don’t always (if ever) fit the modern day costumes that are most often associated with being chosen. In fact, the standards that seem to guide God’s thinking does not ever seem to be that which is used to determine our acceptability to others, nor is it what we often use to determine the acceptability/worthiness of those we are looking to choose. The scripture and questions for this upcoming week are designed to help us to reflect on what it means to be chosen by God, as well as to assist us in our discernment of what God’s chosenness is for in this season as individuals and as a congregation.


 

Have you ever been in a position to put together a “dream team”? Whether for your job,  ministry group, or social setting what guidelines did you use to make your choice?


 

Have you ever been rejected by a group that you viewed as a “dream team”? How did that experience affect you?


 

Are you able to sense God’s calling for/of/in you in this season? For what do you think the call is for?


In what ways does 1 Peter 2:1-10 challenge your current ideas about the ways the Lord ay be calling us as a congregation and the work to which he Lord may be calling us?
