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 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?


  1. Wanna double dip and come to our group tonight?

  2. I'm actually triple dipping...sort of. I'm "running" the groups that are meeting in the Big Room at VCC this Saturday and Sunday.

  3. Great stuff, Sean. We had our first meeting last night and it opened up a lot of doors for reflection, change and, dare I say, hope for people who for far too long thought they were they only ones that dealt with "this" or were burdened with "that".

    When you know you're not the only one struggling, it makes it easier to band together, inspire and support each other towards a better self. The one God designed and wants to lift up, not the one life constantly tries to bring down.

  4. I would like to know who wrote the Free Journal. There is no sourcing printed in it. Is it a local Cincinnati thing? Or is it a national thing?

  5. I believe it was our good friends at CrossRoads. I'm guessing it was a group effort...
