Earlier this month, the following reflection questions were shared about this month’s theme: Expectation. This Sunday, we will take time to share the one question you have identified as speaking to you the most, i.e., “your” question. How do you answer it? What does that say to you? What did the question get you to notice or remember?
- Who taught you the most about defying expectations? How did their courageous living spill over into your own?
- Has life ever blessed you by upending your expectations?
- As you’ve gotten older, do you expect more of life or less of life? How about people? Has age convinced you to expect the best or the worst in them?
- Do you expect life to give you what you deserve? Is that belief one that gets in your way or helps you make your way?
- What if the betrayals of the past aren’t a good predictor of the present?
- Do you live in the world as it should be or in the world as it is?
- Who helps you remember that people really can change?
- Whose belief in you helped you expect more of yourself and become more?
- Do you know what your fellow black and brown UUs expect of you? Do you know if you’ve met their expectations? (Brittany Packnett)
- Do you have a spiritual practice that helps you lean into life’s unexpected twists and turns? Is it time to get one?
- What if God doesn’t reside in life’s dependable patterns but instead lives in the disruptions?
- What’s something you know now about expectation that you didn’t know when you were 18 years old?
- Is today the day you put down all the expectations and just lie back and float?
- Why not make today the day you tell yourself, “I am enough”?
