Discussion Questions:

  1. Do you know anyone who is a “control freak”? Are you one?

  2. How do you feel when you lose control of a situation or are in a group/setting that you’re not in control of?

  3. How do suffering & pain remind us that we’re not in control?

  4. How does the illusion that we’re in control actually imprison us?

  5. How does it distance us from God? Each other? Ourselves?

  6. Why is surrendering to & trusting God’s control a very freeing feeling?

  7. How do these concepts help you grow as a disciple who loves God, loves people & serves the world?
