Pulling back the Curtain – first draft of themes

The books keep dropping through the letter box and I realise that this Study Leave, although an extended period compared to my usual, will only be the start of what is in danger of becoming an obsession that may last a lifetime.

paradigm shiftOne of my aims, going forward beyond the SL, will be to help people see Revelation with new eyes – and hear with opened ears! Perhaps most importantly, to imagine with a creativity from the Spirit that will make this Apocalypse the multi-sensory experience it was designed to be. It may be that we need to pack up our preconceptions about the book in a box and put them to the side in order to experience the paradigm shift that relegates the views of people like Hal Lindsey to the past in order to see things John’s way. Paradigm shifts are hard and take time to work through, so walking with people through that transition will be an important part of the next few months.

Over the last few days I have unexpectedly travelled further along the road of putting the series of Sunday Studies and midweek Forum discussion themes. You can find them in the  PDF below. Comments and suggestions welcome, along with ideas for songs and presentational methods. Let me know of any books you have found helpful in the past, and thanks in anticipation.
