God is already moving and doing things in our lives, neighborhoods and world and He desires for us to meet Him in it.  Can we recognize what He is doing and join Him in it?


Jo and Steph embark on a new season during the season of Lent looking at how we can discern what God is saying and respond to Him accordingly.  In this show they discuss everyday things which prevent us from responding to God - 5 Barriers beginning with ‘B’!

  1. Busyness
  2. Battles
  3. Bitterness
  4. Brokenness
  5. Babies!


Discussion questions:

  1. How does it change how you feel about mission / responding to the brokenness we encounter knowing that God is already there and our job is to just respond to God’s personal invitation to us in each situation?
  2. Think back to changes in seasons in your life which have made it more difficult to recognize what God was doing.  (Job changes, babies, moving from/to singleness)In what ways did you learn in recognize God in new ways in those transitions?
  3. Who are the people who you have invited into your life to prayer with you and help you recognize what God is doing and to keep you accountable to respond?
  4. Which ‘B’ is your biggest struggle right now? Share and pray!
