The Christian story tells us that God made our bodies “good”―so good that Jesus took ON a body! But often it doesn’t feel that way. We spend most of our time disconnecting from ourselves, God, and each other because of our bodies! Race. Gender. Sexuality. Age. Disability. Families. So many bodily differences can be a real source of pain. 

But what if it doesn’t have to be this way? What if we could learn how our bodies could invite us to know God and one another in love, healing, and delight? 

In this series, we are going all the way back to the beginning, to the book of Genesis, to learn more about what it means that our bodies were made good - with all of their potential and limits - in the hope that God will lead us into wholeness.

This is a companion to Highrock’s Body Parts sermon series. It is best used collectively with a small group. Within the companion you will find space each week for notes on the sermon and Scripture text, reflection questions, prompts to discuss your reflection with others, and a closing prayer. 

When considering the reflection questions notice those that resonate with you and spend some time considering them. The goal is not to answer everything or have all the “right” answers―instead, let these questions serve as a starting point for your conversation with God and others. See the Appendix of this guide for more resources and opportunities to engage with this study.
