  1. Marc referred to three phrases about pain; a) Pain is God’s way of getting our attention, b) Pain is God’s way of teaching us a lesson, and c) Pain is accomplishing God’s will. Discuss your experiences with each of those phrases. How do you feel about them now following Marc’s message?
  2. Marc said that Jesus’ presence is not about causing pain but rather bringing healing. Have you ever had a time in your life where you can say you experienced God bringing healing?
  3. Going through pain can be a time of deep learning and communion with God. Have you experienced this in your life? How did you grow? It can also feel like a dark night of the soul where God feels absent. If you’ve experienced this, what or who, if anything, comforted you or gave you strength?
  4. Oasis is a space of being fluent in God’s language – How do you understand this? What might that look like for you?
