In addition to the weekly spiritual challenges we have offered at the close of every sermon of this “New Heart for a New Year” series, there is another way to connect with each Sunday’s theme. As you know, the series is based on a Celtic prayer called “Lord of My Heart” and has 5 prayer petitions - Vision, Light, Wisdom, Courage, Trust. The five pastors who collaborated on this series put together a Virtual Study Guide to go along with it.
Below, you will find 5 videos and 5 discussion guides. These videos are Zoom conversations with 5 Interesting Leaders in our Disciples of Christ denomination. Each one is interviewed about their thoughts regarding one of the themes (Vision, Light, Wisdom, Courage, Trust). Additionally, there is a link to some questions to consider, reflect on and journal about.
Watch them on your own and use the questions as your own personal meditation time
Watch them in a small group (like your household) and consider sharing your answers to the questions with one another.
But however you use this material, I hope it helps connect you to the themes of this sermon series.
