Japanese Faith Course
Part 8

We Were Never Meant To Carry The Burden Alone

The Japanese Faith Course is a Discussion

Please remember the Japanese Faith Course is a discussion centered experience. I am not a teacher who is telling you what to think or how to live. I am coming to you in humility, simply sharing some observations in hopes of opening a dialogue. My observations are not "right," they are a launching point to discussing a vastly interesting and challenging topic. 



Therefore, my hope is that you hear my observations with an open curiosity, and discuss them with friends and family. It would be best to gather a few people, play the short video, and use the questions below to generate a free discussion of ideas.


JFC Part 8 Questions

1. The Japanese have traditionally carried the burden of wa/giri on their shoulders without help. It is a heavy load, one that most other nations have abandoned. Have you seen the effects of this pressure in your life and others you know? Can you give an example?

1. 日本人は伝統的に「和・義理」という重荷を、誰の助けも借りずに肩代わりしてきた。それは、他のほとんどの国々が放棄してきた重い荷物です。この重圧があなたの人生や知り合いに影響を及ぼしているのを見たことがありますか?例を挙げることができますか?


2. Jesus says He experienced this burden personally. He empathizes with us, and His death of the cross takes the burden for those who trust in Him. Does this seem possible to you?

2. イエス様はこの重荷を個人的に経験したと言っています。彼は私たちに共感し、彼の十字架の死は彼を信頼する人々のために重荷を取る。このことは、あなたにとって可能なことですか?


3. Faith develops as your relationship develops. Are you willing to take a step to start a relationship with Jesus?

3. 信仰は、あなたの関係が発展するにつれて発展します。あなたは、イエス様との関係を始めるために一歩を踏み出すことができますか?
