To think about/discuss – now, in the Facebook chat and in Growth Groups…

  • What lessons do you think we can we learn from the persecuted church at this time?
  • How do you think you’d cope if you were persecuted for your faith – what would be the hardest things for you?
  • How can we pray for – and support – Christians who are persecuted?
  • When do you find it hardest to remain faithful to God?
