|King David and the prophet Nathan|
1. What one thought or idea from today's lesson especially intrigued, provoked, disturbed, challenged, encouraged, warmed, warned, helped, or surprised you?
2. Share a story about a time when you felt you experienced a miracle, or when you prayed for a miracle that never came.
3. How do you respond to the literary approach that looks for meaning in miracle stories? Can you apply it to some other miracle stories?
4. If you could have a magical power, what would it be, and why?
5. Keep these two miracle stories in mind throughout this week, and see if they bring new insights to situations you face.
6. Hold in silence the image of an empty ceremonial stone container being filled with water that is transformed to wine. Hear the sound of water filling to the brim. See the water change in color, and taste the change in flavor as it becomes wine. Hear the sound of people celebrating in the background. Sit with the words empty, full, and transformed. See what prayer takes shape in your heart.
