Just recently I became aware of Convergence: Where Faith and Life Meet, a new study for small groups. I got a chance to watch some from the DVD Sampler tonight, and think it’s a pretty cool new resource. This is how they describe it on the website:
Convergence is a new DVD series designed specifically for small groupsÂ looking for more than just Bible study.Â Convergence will examine the intersections between faith and real life with the goal of sparkingÂ deeper conversations and stronger community within small groups.
Each DVD features Donald Miller (Blue Like Jazz) facilitating a conversation with another well-known Christian author or speaker about the challenges that Christians face while trying to integrate faith with real life.
Over the past year, I’ve found it especially difficult to find good curriculum / materials for groups for young adults. While Convergence is certainly for people of all ages (they suggest out-of-college and above), I think it’s something that might work well for such a group at our church. It’s a video-based curriculum featured Donald Miller interacting with some pretty cool people: Phyllis Tickle, Lauren Winner, Dan Allender and others. They have some discussion guides as well that you can preview here.
You can view their promo video here – I think I may try this out with some of our young adults this summer.
