Franciscan priest Richard Rohr observed, “We cannot think our way into a new kind of living. We must live our way into a new kind of thinking.”
Well, here goes nothing! Today is the first official blog bible study. I hope everyone has their book. If not, I have attached the pdf of the first week InterruptedSample. No excuses now!
Let’s take care of the business first. Please introduce yourself to us by commenting here with your name, state, and what you hope to gain from this study. Also, I need a working email for each one of you. There are some songs and other extras that I need to send to you each week.
This week you will complete the first week’s session “The Poor” p. 13-31
Next Monday, I will upload a short five-part video that will document the story of a group of people discovering Jesus in the lowest and the least of their community, and serving Him there.
I will post different questions for each of you to pick and choose which ones you personally want to answer. Then comment away. We can comment and discuss as much as we need to encourage, spur on, and create a blog community of believers who want to allow Jesus to “Interrupt” their lives.
I want to share with you why I picked this study. I read the book version of this study a few months ago and downloaded the first week’s bible study and I was hooked when I read this quote:
“I developed a spiritual form of bulimia where I did my devotionals, read all the new Christian books and saw the Christian movies, and then vomited information up to friends, small groups, and pastors. But it never had the chance to digest. I had gorged myself on all the products of the Christian industrial complex but was spiritually starving to death. I was marked by an overconsumption but malnourished spiritually.”
THIS WAS ME!
I am praying for each of you as we begin this new adventure together.
Do your homework!
