Reviews - What do customers think about Ordinary Day With Jesus LG?
Valuable Resource May 12, 2007
We bought this product for use in a small group setting. We have found it particularly useful in facilitating conversation about walking with God in everyday life. The material is designed for a large group seminar setting. So converting it for use in a small group requires some forethought and planning.
The material is good and has helped deepen relationships and offered some solid questions that can lead to greater group intimacy. It does require skilled facilitation.
Ordinary Day was GREAT Oct 21, 2002
This book and study guide gives practical ways to stay in touch with Jesus all throughout your day and week. Giving practical ways to invite Him into your thinking and working each day. The main thing I learned (or was reminded of) was that Worship and walk with Jesus is a conscience effort. You need to allow Jesus to walk with you through EVERYTHING you do. We did this study as a small group (12-18 people). The discussions were great and the video added another dimension that held attention and was a wonderful springboard to further discussion. We may do it again with another group!! A super "growth potential" tool for small groups.
