I am very encouraged with your feedback, thoughts, and engagement of our God Story study – what a great Story we are a part of! Thanks for your willingness to consider these concepts and passages/we all have different availability and needs – so – set the SCOPE of your study to fit YOU – if I were to prioritize for approach:
– start reading the next sections/passages right away/even the next day if you can
– if you try to do 20 minutes each day in the passages you will probably hit 3-4 days successfully/awesome!
– just jot down your thoughts in the spaces provided/we are not writing a paper, we are isolating principles – interacting with each passage
– watch the videos whenever you can/they will enhance and expand your experience
– I recommend watching the God Story in 10 minutes video several times during these four weeks http://thegodstory.com/the-god-story/
Enjoy your week – I know I will!
