Pastor Matt shared how he enjoyed growing up in a small town. Where did you grow up? What did you like about your “hometown” and growing up there or what did you not like about it?
How do you think it would have felt to not be welcome in your hometown?
Read Ezekiel 36:25-27 as a group. What is the evidence of a heart of flesh in your life? How has God been transforming you? Or how have you seen God transforming the other members of your group?
What areas do you keep the doors closed and blinds down so as to keep the light from coming in? What is holding you back? What would be the first step to opening that door or those blinds to let the light come in?
