Talk It Out- Easter Weekend- Roses  
These questions and thoughts are designed to help you create connection in your Community Group.

*Start Talking: Find a conversation starter for your group from the following questions…

- If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?

- What is one goal you’d like to accomplish during your lifetime?

*Weekend Recap:
“The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd.” Psalm 23:1 TPT

 “So this is my command: Love each other deeply, as much as I have loved you. For the greatest love of all is a love that sacrifices all. And this great love is demonstrated when a person sacrifices his life for his friends.” John 15:9 TPT

Jesus wants a relationship with you.

3 Points:
Jesus was a friend to sinners - Mary Magdalene.
Jesus was a friend to the religious - Nicodemus.
Jesus is a friend to the thieves and the broken - Criminal on the cross.

*Discussion Points:
Which individual can you identify with the most in regards to how Jesus became your friend?

How is Jesus a friend to you? What Is our friendship like with Jesus?

How would you invite others into a friendship with Jesus?

Jesus took a sinful life and made it whole. He took a cracked, religious life and made it whole. He took broken life and made it whole. He can take the broken in your life and make it whole.

*End in Prayer:
Take some time to pray together as a group- share requests/needs/praises.  You can pray in smaller groups of 2 or 3, or all together. Take turns praying for one another and encourage one another to pray throughout the week for all things.

Challenge one another to take the time to pray through all areas that are empty/broken with you this week. Connect with each other and encourage one another as you go through the week praying.
