DISCIPLE2 is a 32 week personal growth study
A follow-up course to DISCIPLE1, this slightly shorter course takes the disciple through the Biblical books of Genesis / Exodus and Luke / Acts.
Similar in structure to DISCIPLE1, there are certain clear differences:
1. Daily Readings:
~ Set Bible readings for five days (as you are only reading a small part of the Bible these readings are not as onerous as in DISCIPLE1); and
~ Study notes on the sixth day (once again, you get one day off a week... "You shall keep the Sabbath as a day of rest...").
2. Reflection during the week:
~ this is the main difference between DISCIPLE1 and DISCIPLE2;
~ reflection is invited each day on one particular area of the Spiritual Disciplines; this reflection is done in the light of the readings and theme for the week, and where you are in your walk as a disciple;
~ you are also invited to reflect on a particular aspect of keeping the Sabbath, and how this applies to your life; and
~ you are challenged to reflect on what God is saying into your life through the readings, notes and reflection, and how you are going to respond this week.
3. A weekly meeting:
~ ample time and opportunity to discuss the readings for the week;
~ Bible teaching (on DVD) by top Biblical scholars from the USA;
~ study and discussion of a particular Bible passage;
~ discussion on the Spiritual Discipline and Sabbath principle;
~ an opportunity to share God's Word into your life for the week; and
~ a commitment to pray for each other within the group.
