Our medium sized group met and started the Free journey together last night. It was two hours that flew by and could have gone much longer. I wasn't sure what to expect with this study, but so far I'm a big fan.
If your church is doing the series, I highly recommend jumping on board with a group of friends/strangers/janitors and plugging into the small group study.
If your church isn't one of the 59 churches in Cincinnati going through it - well there are still a few ways that you can connect with Free.
1. You can watch or listen online to one of the church's weekend messages.
2. If you don't have a church home, maybe give one of the above churches a six week test drive.
3. If you go to one of the above churches, but aren't plugged into a group...you can still find groups in just about every one still. There are also several that have open groups that are meeting on site.
I'm a big fan of groups, or really anything that happens outside of the actual church building. I think that's where you'll find you have more opportunities to talk about life, faith, and the things that keep you up at night.
I'm only one week into my Free journey, but I've already gone three rounds of wrestling with the journal... I think this thing has the potential to inspire change. ...and what could be better than that?
