St. Nicholas Episcopal Church of Kapolei Hawaii has held "Covenant Group" meetings for about 10 years. These groups meet weekly for fellowship, prayer and reflection on the readings and the sermon from the previous week. This blog is an attempt to offer the prayer and reflection as an on-going basis. The challenges of schedules and more prevent many members from participating in our groups, perhaps this will allow for additional participation. I will post readings and questions - please answer the questions and contribute as you're comfortable in the comment sections. Blessings

BOOK – Jeremiah 1:4-10
Jeremiah was called before he was even born.
  1. What hard work did God call Jeremiah to do?
  2. Jeremiah’s objection to God was that he was too young – he didn’t know how to
    speak. If God had appointed YOU the prophet, what would your objection be?
    (Or would you have no objections?).
3 What do you find to be the most positive aspect of this reading?

Jeremiah 1:4-10
The word of the LORD came to me saying,
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to the nations."
Then I said, "Ah, Lord GOD! Truly I do not know how to speak, for I am only a boy." But the LORD said to me,

"Do not say, 'I am only a boy';
for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and you shall speak whatever I command you, Do not be afraid of them,
for I am with you to deliver you,

says the LORD."
Then the LORD put out his hand and touched my mouth; and the LORD said to me, "Now I have put my words in your mouth.
See, today I appoint you over nations and over kingdoms,
to pluck up and to pull down,
to destroy and to overthrow,

to build and to plant."

    1. To go out and tell people what they needed to know, but not necessarily what people want to hear.
    2. I can't do this, be with me.
    3. God is with us.
