Making All Things New – Introduction
Heart Speaks to Heart – Prologue
A very warm welcome to each of you. I’m so glad you’ve decided to join us! Our journey together over the next six weeks will surely be full of sharing and deepening. For those of you who are returning, you know how incredible this community is, and for those who are joining us for the first time you will soon discover its blessing.
Let me quickly share how the discussion flows. Each Sunday you will discover a new “post,” indicated by the bold title, on the blog’s Home page. This post will have discussion questions based around the week’s readings (link to reading schedule in the image above). It works best if you always add any new comment to the newest post, even if you are referring to an earlier post. That way, everyone will see your comment. After you submit a comment, either Maureen or I need to “approve” it, so it may take a few hours before it actually appears on the blog page. If you have any further questions about how the blog works, please feel free to ask.
This is the first time we have explored two books at the same time, but they flow so well together we will gain immensely from the combination. While Making All Things New guides us to let our knowledge of Christ descend into our heart and thereby affect our daily lives, Heart Speaks to Heart will invite our awakened hearts to be touched and healed by Jesus.
Over the next few days you are invited to introduce yourself to the group. You may choose to share:
a) Your general geographic location
b) To whom or what you dedicate your days and energy, and why
c) Whether or not you’ve participated in previous book discussions, or if you are joining us for the first time
Please also feel free to share any thoughts, ideas or stirrings that come up for you you as you read the Introduction/Prologue of these two books.
I very much look forward to hearing from each of you,
