Find Your People: Building Deep Community in a Lonely World (OBS) by Jennie Allen [REVIEW]

SYNOPSIS

Never in the history of civilization have we been more connected and felt more alone. We are all so lonely. What if fundamentally the ways we have set up our lives is broken? We’ve withdrawn rather than moved through it. We want supper clubs and friends, instead of war partners. We have a wrong view of community.

This seven-session video Bible study begins with a look at the original community in Genesis, the Trinity, and the creation of people to see what God had planned for us all along. We will also discover throughout the study the five life patterns required to build deep, connected relationships:


Proximity
Shared Mission
Transparency
Accountability
Consistency
The seven sessions include:


Week 1: Introduction  It is not good for man to be alone. (Creation)

Week 2: The Disruption of Community  Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. (Shame)

Week 3: Proximity  I will make My dwelling among you. (God’s Presence)

Week 4: Transparency  And all who believed were together and had all things in common. (Acts)

Week 5: Accountability  Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (The Church Grows)

Week 6: Shared Mission  Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others. (Jesus and the Disciples)

Week 7: Consistency  Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples. (The Kingdom of God / New Heavens)

REVIEW

Our society is weird!

We pride ourselves on needing no one and brag on our personal achievements.

BUT

In reality we are terribly lonely and longing for deep connection with others.

That is the juncture where this study comes in.

I would like to thank the amazing ladies who took this journey with me. We come from all walks of life but are able to find common ground through the Word.

As with other studies that I have done with this group we are part of the launch team through Faithgateway. It is an honor to be invited to participate in these studies and set the stage for those that come after us.
