THREE SIMPLE RULES, A Wesleyan Way of Living by Rueben P. Job
We live in a fast paced, frenzied, and complex world that makes it easy to believe we are all trapped into being someone we do not wish to be, and living a life we do not desire to live. We long for some way to cut through the complexities and turbulence of everyday life. We search for a way to overcome the divisiveness that separates, disparages, disrespects, diminishes, and leaves us wounded and incomplete.

There are three simple rules that have the power to change the way we operate in this world. While they are ancient, they have seldom been fully put to the test. Join us as we discover these rules and how to apply them to find peace in an anxiety riddled world.

FORGIVEN, Finding Peace Through Letting Go by Adam Hamilton
Our need to forgive and be forgiven is like carrying a backpack filled with rocks. Over time the tiny pebbles and giant boulders weigh down and break more than our spirits. In this study, we will explore how to receive the freedom that comes from forgiving– even if the person needing to be forgiven is oneself. The study walks us through the challenges that come from learning to forgive and ask forgiveness. Freedom, grace, reconciliation and joy are all promised to those who embrace forgiveness.

THE POWER OF A WHISPER, Hearing God and Having the Guts to Respond by Bill Hybels

This study is a journey towards getting better at hearing from God and getting bolder about obeying what He asks us to do. We’ll be exploring what it means to let input from heaven navigate our lives here on earth! Hybels cast a vision for what life on earth looks like when God’s followers turn an ear toward heaven– discerning whispers that arbitrate key decisions, nudges that rescue us from dark nights of the soul, urgings from the lips of another person, and inspiration that opens glazed-over eyes to the plight of injustice and poverty in the world.

VANISHING GRACE, Whatever happened to the Good News? by Phillip Yancey
While opinions about Christianity are dropping, interest in spirituality is rising. Why the disconnect? Why are so many asking, “What’s so good about the Good News?”  In this study we’ll explore the desperate need our world has for grace, and how Christians can truly make the gospel good news again. Jesus has the uncanny ability to look at everyone with grace tinted eyes, seeing not only the beauty of who they were, but also the sacred potential of what they would become. Let’s explore how to view the world with those same, Grace–tinted eyes.
