Rob Bell on Death

My small group has been working through Rob Bell’s Nooma series lately and although I realize that Bell has taken on a lot of recent criticism, this week’s video on death drew out amazing discussion (and tears) from our group.

I was amazed to discover that nearly half of the people in our group has suffered from the loss of a parent.

YouTube has posted part of the video, so I’ve linked it in here.  The questions that go with the video are as follows:

  • Think about someone you lost.
    • How do you remember that person?
  • How would you describe the way you’re feeling about your loss?
  • What do you think it means to “properly grieve”?
    • Have you let the full force of your loss hit you?
  • Why is it so easy to become bitter when we lose someone we love?
    • Have you chosen not to be bitter?
  • Is guilt keeping your heart from recovering?
  • Think about who you do have.
  • Do you trust that God will someday restore everything?
    • Do you believe that includes being reunited with the people you love?
