Blogger Small Group – Scripture Release Week 8

with 3 comments

Scripture Release:
Partnered with Jeff over at Consuming Worship, we are releasing week eight’s scripture for the Blogger Small Group. If you unaware of what this small group still is, GO HERE to read the expectations, instructions and guidelines. EVERYONE IS INVITED TO JOIN IN!!

Also, this is an entry for Los’ Creative Chaos for the week of June 12. Be sure to check out the rest of the Creative Chaos nuts over at Ragamuffinsoul.

This week we’re going to be breaking down Romans a little differently. Normally every week, we take a chapter from a book, read the entire thing, then come back here and share. This week we are going to try something a little different. My friend at Worship Revolution had suggested this little change. At first I was not sure if this is where or how I wanted the small group to go, but after looking into Romans a little more, and seeing the length of the chapters coming up, I believe this is going to be good for all us. His suggestion was that we break down the chapters a little smaller, in return I believe we will reap these benefits:

  • Less Reading
  • More study time
  • Deeper discussion
  • Better feedback

It does mean that it will take us a little longer to get through Romans. However, I don’t think you can sacrifice knowledge and growth for time. Nor do I believe it makes sense to hurry up and get through a reading just to to get through it, meanwhile you’re missing out on TONS of valuable/priceless information.

This week we’re going to start on Romans chapter three(3). However instead of the full chapter, we’re going to focus on verses one[1] through eight[8]. We’ll see how this goes, and at the end of the week, I would like everyone’s feed back with how they feel on the change, good or bad. Honesty is all I ask for when giving feedback.

Remember, next Tuesday is when we get together and meet to share where this scripture lead us, and to discuss with each other in whatever way God leads us.

  1. great, glad to see it is broken down a little bit… a full chapter of Romans is a big thing indeed.
