Psalm 74 – "Living with More than the Puzzling Present" – J. P. Kang

Discussion Questions:

1. Who or what things in your life are like a security blanket to you? In what ways might they—even good things—also shield you from hearing and responding to God?

2. How can faith in God help you deal with things that you don’t understand or can’t control? How does being part of a faith community help you process acts of violence and prejudice?

3. In what ways does reading the Bible and praying—with imagination—give you fresh perspective to see the ups and downs of your life and to live with "more than the puzzling present"?
