In the preface to Eat This Book, Eugene Peterson writes, “In order to read the Scriptures adequately and accurately, it is necessary at the same time to live them.” As preachers, we take this one step further: in order to PREACH the Scriptures adequately and accurately, it is necessary at the same time to live them.
Dwell Group members will engage in the beautifully complicated task of living the sermon. We will enter scripture in a new way and allow it to take hold of us. We will learn to resist the temptation to quickly speak into Scripture and instead have the Scriptures speak to us.
Over the next year, we will follow the outline of the preacher’s task: Dwell, Craft, Proclaim. And we will ask the same four questions of each element of the outline: why, what, how, and when. These 12 modules will guide our conversation throughout the year. Each module contains an essay written specifically for Dwell Groups, several supporting videos, and an opportunity for you to reflect and practice.
