Breathe (Byron Smith)

Our breath connects us with the whole of God’s Creation

Byron Smith talks about how our breath – the very thing that keeps us alive – connects us deeply with the rest of God’s Creation.

Discussion Questions:

What did you think was the most significant idea in this message?

What ‘junk’ is your life breathing out?

What fresh breeze from God have noticed recently?

How might seeing the Holy Spirit as the Breath of Life shape our worship?

How might it affect our patterns of life together as a local/national/global community?
