Yesterday was 90 and humid; today I’m in layers. The temperature whiplash has prompted me to think about seasonal change. So, that is the gist of the discussion questions.

See you soon!

1. How does the onset of autumn affect you – physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually? Do you do more of something? Less of something? What is the “best” thing about this season?

2. Historically, what big changes to life have you experienced in autumn?

3. Describe your current “season of life”. What was the prior season? What was your path for moving into the current season?

4. In what ways does your observation of the progression of nature’s seasons give you insight about moving through your own seasons?
