Bible Study on Our Role in Creation

This study was used at Main Street Community Church, 22 September 2009. It is being made available, so you can use it if you like. It consists of reading passages of Scripture and then discussing the questions that are set - we gave each passage to a different person to read. It is designed to be led by a leader who asks people to read a passage, poses the questions, allows suitable time for discussion, but without giving their own views, and moves people on from one question to the next. We took one hour to cover all but the final passages.

When a question says 'Quickly', this means the question is not meant intended to be discussed in depth, but only to 'orientate' those present towards this topic; usually the answer is obvious, and is here given in [square brackets]. What worked for us was to get the person who read the passage to quickly give this 'obvious' answer. The Study worked with allowing people to discover things for themselves from these passages in response to the questions, and accepting most of the comments made - but the leader might have to move people on.
