The “With God” Life

Week 1: Sunday 8th September

Theme: Introduction – The WITH God Life.
Scripture: James 1:22-25Matthew 11:28-30


Practice: The Learning Circle questions.

When God speaks or nudges us very often the challenge is dwelling on what he says and following through in obedience. The learning circle is a simple visual tool to help disciples discuss and discern together how God may be speaking to us. Imagine the sorts of conversations Jesus would have had with his disciples in the gospels.

Why don’t you grab some people from your MC and use the learning circle to deepen your conversations as you reflect on this Sunday’s message.
