Horton Hears a Who

This coming Sunday, we will be reflecting on Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who in conjunction with Jesus telling the parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37. As you prepare for gathered worship, read Luke 10:25-42 (as well as Horton Hears a Who) and consider the following thoughts and questions:

  • Who are the people in our local community who are without voice and status? (In Dr. Seuss’ terminology, who are the ‘Whos’ among us?)
  • What scriptures can you think of that address how we are to act toward people who are poor and marginalized? (check out this link for some ideas).
  • In the Parable of the Good Samaritan, Jesus changes the question from “who is my neighbor?” to “what does it mean to be a good neighbor?” What do you think of Jesus’ reframe? What are ways that you can be a better neighbor especially to those living on the margins of society?
  • What else strikes you about this passage from Luke 10?

Feel free to post other related thoughts and questions as we prepare for gathered worship this Sunday.

Peace, Phil
