Twenty minutes is all it takes to choose your own adventure in this new Bible-study tool, A Parallel Journey. Different demographic profiles are included that present you, the learner, with a variety of different decisions and what the outcome might be for your chosen profile.
Throughout the journey, you will be presented with Bible verses for reflection and time to absorb how the experience of the character may (or may not) correlate to your own life experience. Each decision point illustrates how the character’s life may be impacted by their demographic profile.
The interactive activity is a collaboration of this summer’s Disciples Peace Fellowship interns and Reconciliation Ministry. Instead of their usual summer travel to camps, the interns participated in several projects with different ministries such as the #DOCjustsummer series of stories. You can hear directly from them about their experience writing the piece, go through part of it with them, and finally think about other ways you might use this resource or learning in this video presentation.
This resource can be used by an individual or by groups. The rich opportunities for discussion by several learners could be either in person or via electronic means.
This is just one of the many ways your gifts to the Reconciliation Ministry Offering can help toward the work of justice. The offering will be received in most congregations Sept. 27 and Oct. 4. You can also give online to support this important work.
