Desperate to be Heard or Noticed
Think of a time in your life when you felt like you were not being heard or noticed. Share this with your group.
Discuss in your group how you relate to Brian’s story.
1 Corinthians 12:27-28 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues.
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you. Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.

There is a heavy grief associated with the disappointment that someone important to you cannot or will not empathize or understand you. It is like they have died to you, in a way, because the connection with the person you thought was there seems to have been broken or dissolved. It is such a deep need as a human to be heard--to be understood-- that when we interact with someone who does not hear and understand us, the ability to fully describe this loss in words is impossible: it must be felt.
