Suggestions for how to use the materials

Each small group will use the studies differently. Some groups will really want to dive deeply into the suggested readings and additional resources for each lesson, and some will prefer a "lighter" approach, maybe just using the videos and discussion questions. Depending on the dynamics of your group, you can either view the lesson videos together, or ask group members to view them in advance of gathering and then go through the discussion questions together. There is no wrong way to do it!

I'm just getting started with this, with the intent of using the Yale Divinity Bible Study to pilot one or more ecumenical online small groups during the Coronavirus self isolation period. We hope this will help us spawn interest that will carry over into more online or face-to-face study in the long term.

 

I thought of starting with the "Reading the Bible" two-session course, and then moving into the 8 week course in Matthew.

 

But I don't see any forums on these courses. Does that matter? Do we start our own? How does that work?  

 

Thanks,

John Seraphine

@johnseraphine were you looking to have open, public forms on these books of the bible or setting up a private discussion group or both? If only a private discussion, we're on the way as your group has been set up. If you'd like to see a pubic option as well, we'll get something rolling there. Thanks!

I received your previous email as well. 

I think now we only want the private discussion group. I'll check the site out and the private group that you say has been set up--all when I have some more time.

 

We are inviting all interested parties to a ZOOM MEETING this coming Monday, April 13. That's when I should have an initial list of names for participants. 

 

Peace,

 

John
