Comment Suppers

A magazine at its heart is an aspirational community. But so often we read something, put it down, and move on. What if we could linger a little longer in the company of others whose distinct lens on the mosaic could enrich our own? Why not try to sew the threads of this issue into the warp and woof of your local neighborhood?

In the context of COVID-19, Comment Suppers are not so easy. But we’d still like to encourage you to gather 6-10 people around a Zoom call or a wide circle. As the evenings get cooler, enjoy a hot bowl of soup with your discussion.

Several discussion prompts are suggested on the back. When the evening’s over, use this bookmark in whatever book you’re reading and let the memory of the discussion enrich the words. To deeper connection, reflection, and revelation…even in these strange times.

Bon appetit!

Fall 2020: Navigating Uncertainty

Discussion Questions

  1. What are the gifts of uncertainty as you’ve experienced them this year?
  2. What virtues and/or habits of mind have been challenged?
  3. Has this year’s uncertainty been a prompt for fresh creativity? Or a catalyst for paralysis?
  4. What is the connection between godly wisdom and temporal uncertainty?
  5. How has uncertainty played out in your field? In what ways might a newfound respect for uncertainty mature your field?
  6. How has this year’s uncertainty caused you to depend even more on God, or perhaps truly depend on him for the first time?
  7. What spiritual practices do you do consistently? Which ones would you like to do consistently? What impact do they have?
