We don’t expect everyone to come to this class with the same background or with similar life experiences. Nor do we assume that we’ll land in the same places on the other side of the course. However, we do hope that all participants will commit to the journey together, upholding Highrock’s values of honesty, humility, and curiosity while seeking to offer hospitality and solidarity at all times to others in the group.
This guide serves as a one-stop resource for each of the six sessions. Prior to each session, watch the assigned video(s) and read the Scripture passage and Covenant Affirmation for that week. Links to the videos, passages, and Affirmations are provided below. Discussion questions for each session are also provided. They are divided into “Teaching” questions, based on the overview of the Covenant Affirmation in the first part of each video, and “Conversation” questions which draw from the live dialogues contained in the second part of each recording.
Questions were formed by Scott Rice (Resident Theologian, Highrock Church). They aren't meant to be exclusive but rather conversation starters. All Scripture passages are taken from the New Revised Standard Version Updated Edition (NRSVUE).
Please adhere to the Conversation Covenant (see below).
If you are using this with a group and can't make it to one of your sessions, we encourage you to write your small group (breakout group) members a note reflecting on what was raised for you in that week's video and reading.
Consider creating a way for your group to share relevant articles, videos, or books that will help connect you throughout the week and allow your meeting time to be more focused. Examples of this might be a Slack channel, a Facebook group, or an email or text thread.
