For all of you who like to be organized and know the plan, here it is. This is the basic schedule we will follow for our study of Duty or Delight.
Routine: Each Tuesday I will post the link to the video, the specific homework pages for that week, and some discussion questions. If you subscribe to this blog, you will get an email notification of each post. Feel free to comment on the discussion questions here on the blog, or join our Facebook group where hopefully we will have active conversations throughout each week.
Videos: The videos are relatively short, typically less than 5 minutes. They are free on the Lifeway website, and you can watch them at any time.
Homework: Each week of homework is approximately 23 pages, which you can do at your own pace. The weeks are NOT divided into structured 5-day assignments, as some people may be used to, so I suggest doing 4-5 pages each day.
Preparation Pre-July 5th: (Do this now) In your DoD book, read the front cover, the back cover and pages 1-9. Prepare your heart and mind in prayer. Ask God to make you available to hear from Him through this study.
Tuesday, July 5th: Official Start Day! We will watch the introductory video and begin Week 1 homework.
July 12th: Watch Week 1 video, Discuss Week 1, begin Week 2 homework.
July 19th: Watch Week 2 video, Discuss Week 2, begin Week 3 homework.
July 26th: Watch Week 3 video, Discuss Week 3, begin Week 4 homework.
August 2nd: Watch Week 4 video, Discuss Week 4, begin Week 5 homework.
August 9th: Watch Week 5 video, Discuss Week 5, begin Week 6 homework.
August 16th: Watch Week 6 Final video, Discuss Week 6.
Conclusion: Celebrate greater intimacy with God, praise him for the good work he is doing in us, and then go forth delighting ourselves in God!
Hope you all have a blessed Independence Day and we’ll talk soon! 🙂
