A few years ago, I had just started working as Children’s Ministry Director and as Adult Sabbath School Director for the Victoria Seventh-day Adventist Church and was passionately trying to get people (be they Adult Sabbath Schools, Children’s Sabbath Schools, families, friendship clusters or work groups) into small groups. I kept hearing the same comment from them all: What resource should we use?
I wanted a way to teach the beautiful Truth without feeling like I was forcing a dog to swallow a pill (if you’ve ever had to put your finger down the back of a dogs throat, you know what I’m talking about!) or playing the role of mother bird, regurgitating a previous meal so my little ones could gulp it down.
Head: building a foundation of knowledge. What more can we learn about this topic?
Heart: learning to love what God loves. How can we experience this emotionally?
Hands: choosing to act as God desires. What can we or should we do?
Horizon: exploring the Kingdom beyond my walls. What can we learn from others?
