Small Group Questions: “He Appeared to Me…In My Grief.”

John 20:1-2, 11-18

1)  Mary was devoted to Jesus; no matter the circumstance, she wanted to follow him. Have you ever been devoted to someone like Mary was devoted to Jesus? What were the qualities about this person that made you feel this way?

2)  Mary’s devotion extended beyond life; during Jesus’ crucifixion and death, she remained with him. Have you ever lost someone you were devoted to?  Have you ever lost a supportive faith community like Mary rightly feared?

3) Mary doesn’t recognize Jesus until he calls her by name. Have you ever heard Jesus call you by name:  a personal address from the personal God of the Universe? In what ways could you listen more for Jesus’ call?
