Needs and Passions

Group members share about the causes that move them.

If you had the necessary resources and could meet any need in the world, what would it be and why?

Leader note: This is a great question to use when you’re discussing calling, missional living, outreach, generosity, or serving others. This one pushes people to think through the variety of good causes in our world to decide the one that they are most passionate about. I like to affirm everyone’s answers afterward, and then tell them to really pay attention to their own answer (many people have never verbalized it before) and consider that maybe God actually planted that passion in them and wants to use them to do something about it. I’ve seen people suddenly realize they should start doing something about the cause they mentioned because it’s from God!
