Kerygma Discussion Questions for Family, Friends and Small Groups:

1. What did you learn from this presentation? What impacted you the most and why?

2. Have you ever taken the time to ponder creation deeply? If not, why not?

3. How is contemplating the grandeur of the universe impacting you right now?

4. In your experience, how many Catholics have been overwhelmed by the message of the gospel and brought to a decision to surrender to Jesus? Why do you think that is?

5. We’re living in unprecedented days. In the midst of the current crisis, what’s causing you anxiety right now? What are your greatest fears? How are you responding to your concerns?

6. The One who made the stars is with us in these days, in fact, He’s with us every day. Carve out some time in prayer and consider having an honest conversation with God about whatever is on your heart, with the intention of leaving every burden at His feet and ask Him for the peace that surpasses all understanding.
