Discussion Questions:
Feel free to use some or all of these questions in your cell group, Bible study, or with your family. Some questions will need to be reworded or omitted for smaller children.

1) Have you ever thought about Christ’s role in creation before? Does his role feel comforting to you, or challenging, or scary, or awe-inspiring?

2) What does it mean to you when you say on Sundays “We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made?” (the Nicene Creed)

3) Christ made the world. What difference does that make to the way you think about your possessions? What differenced does it make to the way you think about caring for the environment? What difference does it make to the way you think about caring for your body?
