Small group discussion guide
Discussion groups might wish to prepare their own topics, request topics from the group, use the following suggested topics, or mix and match all three.
1. How do you personally understand the “real presence of Christ” in the Lord’s Supper?
2. Please share your thoughts on Jesus Christ retaining his “full humanity” after his ascension.
3. Why were the terms “participation” and “relational” used to describe the bread and the wine?
4. Dr. Hunsinger spoke of the incarnation as a “mystery.” Why don’t we fully understand it?
5. What do you think of the “iron in the fire” (abiding distinction/inseparable unity) analogy?
6. Does the concept of “transelementation” make sense to you? Please share your thoughts.
7. “Christ is present in the communion despite our faith traditions.” What does this mean to you?
8. How did the interview impress on you the need to engage on historically divisive issues?
A few simple guidelines for leading a discussion: 1) Encourage open discussion. 2) Ask questions relevant to the topic. 3) Listen attentively. 4) Encourage divergent views. 5) Encourage everyone to participate. 6) Summarize and paraphrase. 7) Minimize teaching and preaching.
