Questions for Discussion and Reflection

  • If you grew up in church, compare the dysfunction of the family of God with the lessons you learned about these characters in Sunday School. Which seems more true to life?

  • How does imadi - “God with me” - in the midst of the dysfunction of the family of God as seen here apply to our own lives today?

  • At the end of the video, reference was made to Psalm 23. Read the passage aloud and talk about what God’s presence means for your daily life.
