Finding Hope!

Introducing our new on-line Bible Study.
It will work for you individually or
for small group sharing.



From time to time we will offer you a topical grouping of lessons by Russell Kelfer
accompanied by “for further thought”/discussion questions and often, his poems and prayers,.
We expect this series on Hope will run each week for five weeks.

Please try it out and let us know what you think
by e-mailing us at!

Discussion Questions


1)   When consequences do not immediately follow wrong-doing, what are we tempted to think?

2)   What makes the parable an effective tool for opening the eyes of one who thinks his/her sin is unknown?

3)   Was Nathan taking a chance in confronting David? How could David have responded?

4)   Was David’s response to the parable a reflection of the “real” David?

5)   How does David’s response to being confronted with his sin reveal that he is a “man after God’s own heart”?

6)   How did God’s mercy and forgiveness affect David as king?
