Acts 28:13-15

13From there we set sail and arrived at Rhegium. The next day the south wind came up, and on the following day we reached Puteoli.

14There we found some brothers who invited us to spend a week with them. And so we came to Rome.

15The brothers there had heard that we were coming, and they traveled as far as the Forum of Appius and the Three Taverns to meet us. At the sight of these men Paul thanked God and was encouraged.

Discussion Questions

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?
