Beginning on Sunday, October 31 (Reformation Day!), Laurie and I will be hosting a study group at our home. There is no “target demographic” for this group, though most of the folks who have already told me they will be coming are college students. I would love for there also to be some folks from other walks of life to contribute their thoughts to the discussion. If someone happens to attend a different church but would like to participate in the group, we’d love to have you as well.
The Truth Project is a DVD-based worldview study published by Focus on the Family, with the help of experts such as Ravi Zacharias, R.C. Sproul, and Os Guiness. The first half focuses on exploring foundational issues such as philosophy, ethics, history, and science. The second half then applies this foundational knowledge to social and cultural issues such as family, church, politics, and media.
Here are two trailers explaining a little more about the Truth Project. The first is a short “teaser” for those who don’t have a lot of time, but I recommend you watch the second, more informative video:
Each night will consist of an hour of watching the week’s video, followed by a 45-60 minute group discussion. I’ll have printouts for all participants, and you’ll also have access to further study materials online.
We’ll meet once a week on Sunday evenings beginning at 7:45 (or 8:00 if church service goes long). We’ll do the first seven weeks in a row, then take a break for the holidays. We’ll resume on either January 16 or 23, and continue with the final six weeks. Laurie and I will provide dinner for all participants. We ask for a $1 per week donation to help with the food cost, but if you can’t afford it we’ll feed you anyway! 🙂
This will be the fourth group I’ve led through this study; it’s REALLY excellent. I hope that many of you will be able to participate! If you have any questions, just let me know. If you’ve participated in the Truth Project before, leave a comment about your experience with it.
P.S. – I’ve created a Facebook group for participants in this study. If you’re interested in joining us, here’s that link.
