Discussion Questions for Sermon Series Letters to the Church Part 8 - Unleashed
God’s Church started as a radical, spiritually intimate gathering of believers that ultimately changed history. Yet millions today are content to be mere observers at church.

Have you ever stepped out in faith and regretted it? Most of us probably have not regretted it, but we are still fearful each time. How can we control the fear? How would this make a difference in our church?
When was the last time you made a decision - one in which your failure or success depended on God coming through miraculously? What happened?
