2017 - 2018 Offerings!
Action to Love
by Stephanie Singer
The Action to Love Toolkit is a video and discussion course designed to be viewed as group. We have created it for small group or church leadership groups. Its purpose is to help you think about and articulate your own groups thoughts and feelings about LGBT issues. It is not designed to tell you what to think or give you doctrin around the topic. Rather, the discussion questions are meant to help you have a conversation as a group in discover what you think.
The Action to Love Toolkit video and discussion questions are best done in a group of 8 to 18 people. Groups over 20 should multiply into 2 or more.
This course is for a small group or church leadership group to walk through together. However, Canvas will require a single person to register and own the account used to access the material. This should be the person who is leading the group through the course content. When working through the material, have the leader simply log into the account and view the video on a screen large enough for everyone to see. (The videos are web-based so the screen will need to be connected to the internet or streaming from a laptop on the internet.) After each video, click the “Next button” at the bottom of the page to move to the discussion questions, which you will go through as a group. There are several short videos, discussion questions, and homework for each module. The course is designed to go through a module at each gathering. Gatherings should be scheduled for 1 hour to 1.5 hours to allow for quality conversation.
