The Ties That Bind, Part 8
Detective Polehaus finds a surprising connection between the Vigilantors and Rhonda Adelaide. The Odyssey Business Association pushes Mr. Whittaker to join the Let’s Get Together Festival. And Jay tries to persuade Emily and Matthew to investigate a ghost town at Hangman’s Hollow.
1. Rhonda Adelaide suggests that sometimes people have to be compelled to accept changes they may not like for the “greater good.” What changes was she talking about? How do you decide what is the greater good? What happens when people can’t agree on the greater good?
2. Why was Detective Polehaus quick to suspect Buck of causing trouble? Is the detective right to suspect someone because of his past crimes? What did you think of the detective saying, “Once a criminal, always a criminal”? Do you know anyone who has changed? How did they change?
3. Why do people like Rhonda Adelaide accuse Christians of practicing “hate”? Can you think of any Christians who have been harsh or unloving? What would you say to Rhonda Adelaide?
4. How can you put your faith in action at home? At church? How can you put your faith in action in public?
5. Ben Parley suggested to Whit that personal belief and faith are becoming irrelevant today. Is he right?
6. Whit seems determined to deal with the Let’s Get Together festival troubles on his own. How could he let Connie, Eugene, and others help him? Why should Christians ask for help from other believers? (See Acts 28:13-15.) How can you help your Christian friends who need help?
