1. Which piece of furniture in the tabernacle best describes how you relate to God? (For example: I find myself looking to him for light and direction in the world, or I spend a lot of time in those outer courts feeling the need to get cleaner and be better before coming to him)
2. Ask a few people in your group to explain “atonement” how would you describe it to a non-believer?
3. How do Atonement and Easter come together for you, share your personal thoughts.
4. How will this help shape the way you approach Easter this year? Is there something that is going to be more or less of a focus? Share the shift if you have one.
Does anyone need clarity on something? Are there any big God questions you are wrestling with?

Through the Bible in one Year
Join us in reading through the entire Bible in one year. Each day of this plan guides you through passages from both the Old and New Testaments, allowing you to see connections between the history of our faith, and the fulfillment of God’s redemptive plan. Readings average four chapters in length, so it is posible to do. When you use the YouVersion Bible App, you can even have the app read the Bible text to you – very useful when you are in the car or otherwise occupied with your hand.
All you need to do is click the link to the Bible Plan, which should lead you straight to the Bible app. Your two options are now (1) to read the plan on your own, one day at the time. Or (2) you can make it more fun and rewarding, by sharing the plan with one or more friends, and then even “Talk about it”.
