2. What kind of thoughts and ideas do you think people of the Comox Valley have about God? What misunderstandings about God may people have that would cause them to prefer independence?

3. Read Galatians 5:1 and 5:13-17  How do you see this passage relating to the ideas of freedom, choice, love, and dependence?
