This week we are talking about sharing — specifically, being authentic and real with each other, even when life is hard or when we feel vulnerable. Each of us has an opportunity and responsibility to display God’s glory — who He is and how He is present among us. Yet we cannot be a display of anything if our lives and hearts are not engaged with others.

Today’s scripture and discussion question are:

“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life. As long as it is day, we must do the work of Him who sent me.” John 9:3-4

How do you resist the temptation to hide out or become isolated in your circumstances? What would be some appropriate times for privacy and solitude as compared to times for reaching out and sharing your story?

These “Finding Glory Wednesdays” posts are an online discussion series based on the books Finding Glory in the Thorns and the companion Finding Glory in the Thorns: Group Discussion Guide by Larry and Lisa Jamieson. For more information about Finding Glory Groups, visit
