Brave by Angela Thomas – Session 1

I’m not sure what to expect from this Bible study called “Brave: Honest Questions Women Ask”. I’ve heard and read some wonderful things about it, though. In fact, it was what I read about the activities in the workbook on the Bible Café for Women blog that swayed my decision to sign up for this study over the others that my church offered this quarter. Then I was blessed beyond belief when my Pastor asked me to facilitate the study.

I immediately began praying for the women that God would bring to the study and for me to stay out of God’s way so that He could teach all of us.

Video: Session 1 has no viewer guide. But here is what I got out of the 12-minute video introducing the study: Things may not always go according to our plan, but God is never surprised by the circumstances in which we find ourselves. It is brave to take the adventure of walking with God.

Class Activity/Discussion: We spent the better part of our meeting time getting to know each other. We took a moment to introduce ourselves and explain which chapter of the study we were most looking forward to. We chose prayer and accountability partners, and exchanged contact information so that we could keep in touch with each other. After the video, we took a few minutes to discuss what we learned and were inspired to share our own vacation mishaps. It brought lots of laughter and realization that we have more in common with each other than we imagined.
