Confirmands will spend the weekend learning how the lines we draw in life make an impact on how we see God at work in the world. We’ll stay in Assembly Inn in Montreat. Friday night and Saturday morning will include discussion and diving into the Word. Saturday afternoon we will incorporate a Poverty Walk with the Asheville Poverty Initiative where we’ll learn more about the challenges facing those living in poverty. We’ll enjoy dinner out and plan our own worship for Sunday morning. We’ll be back by 3pm Sunday.

Questions to Consider Where do we draw lines? What lines exist in our everyday lives? How have lines defined/comforted you? Why are lines comforting to others? How do lines divide people? How do lines inhibit your ability to see others? How do we unify God’s creation? How did you see society’s lines during the afternoon service work? What divisions do you see in Christianity? How can we honor God’s call for community even with our differences? How do we take this home?
