“A brilliant follow on from the Christianity Explored Course.”
(Review written for 'Discipleship Explored Study Guide')
I have just come back to God after an absence of 30 years and was asked if I wanted to do the Christianity Explored course. I agreed, but it was a very small group of 3 in total. I found it to be a very informative and soul seeking course. It gave me a lot to think about as I have a terminal heart problem, and most of the time I cannot attend worship because of this, so it was based at my house and the course had to go along at my pace. We finished the course and I and the other person thought it was really good. Having enjoyed the experience of the course, I wanted to do the Discipleship course, but the other people could not because of other ministerial duties and holidays, so I decided to start it myself. I am finding it difficult and challenging at times, but with continues prayer and guidance from Jesus I am coping. I find at times that I cannot come up with the answer straight away so I put the book back down, put the DVD back on, watch the session again, again if necessary, and I go to my quiet place and pray for understanding, then go back to it, and that works for me. I am half way through session 6, their is more thought required for this as I do not have the chance of discussion with anybody and I am finding it more soul searching than before. If you want to get in touch with me in a few weeks time, when I have completed the course, I don't mind. I hope that this might give someone encouragement to do a couse like this, as I said it had been 30 years since I had even set foot in a church and to go through Christianity Explored gave me a wonderful foundation. Thank You for that. The Discipleship Explored is giving me love, hope and encouragement for me to go on in life, and for the strength to live beyond death, to a new inspired life, a life that is full of His Grace and Mercy.
