…about the idea of sharing a Bible study together?
Here’s what I’m thinking. For several years now it has been on my heart to write a Bible study. In the last few weeks, it has become clear what the subject matter would be for this first one. The purpose of this blog is: “To support and encourage individuals who are considering leaving the meetings or have already left the meetings.” I want to now provide a tool to help anyone on this journey by addressing the questions that arise during that process and to share the scriptures that helped me in my journey plus any other insights that were shared or received during that period of time.
In the meeting church, we would say were ‘going’ to Bible study or ‘having’ a Bible study but we didn’t ‘do’ a Bible study. A formalized, printed format was not provided with space to comment, journal and later discuss as a group. I have participated in many Bible studies in recent years in this style and have not only benefited from them immensely, but have simply loved the entire process.
I envision a workbook being available to anyone wanting to participate in the study. Workbooks could be ordered and completed at your own leisure. This would be an individual study unless, of course, there were 2 or more of you in your area that wanted to do it as a group. Group discussion is very helpful in these kind of studies.
I am now working on the first few chapters but I want to get a feel from my readers if this is something you are interested in. If so, let me know topics you would like to see covered. I can’t guarantee every subject mentioned will make it in the workbook, but all will certainly be considered.
I realize this first study will attract participants only who have a meeting background. Perhaps, the next study will reach a broader audience. I can’t wait to hear from you!
