1. YOU: Can you recall a time when you were most broken- hearted, or most devastated? Who did you turn to for help and comfort? No one? Family, friend, relative... God? What was that like? What came of it? (You can or don’t have to share any portion. Only as you feel safe and lead to share.)

  2. BIBLE: What was it about Hannah’s “brokenness” that moved God’s heart? [see 1Sam.1&2] How did Hannah’s brokenness transition to godly transformation?

  3. OTHERS: How should we comfort others—with what kind of comfort, or Who’s comfort? [see 2Cor.1:3-4] Where does our comfort come from?

  4. What was the most helpful thing to you in the text or the sermon on the text?
