Week 1 – Introduction

mountaintopIn this first week of Following Jesus, we will get a sense for the framework of the
program and reflect a bit on where each of us is now, as we begin.

The program offers a brief daily study for six days of the week, focused on a particular
passage of scripture, mainly (but not only) drawn from the Gospels. Sometimes the
passage for a single day is part of a longer scriptural story or event that will be unfolded
over several days.

Following the scripture is a brief teaching, followed by some questions for reflection and a prayer. We have imagined that a person doing this study alone would need about 30 minutes to reflect on a single session.

The study may be used by individuals as a daily discipline, by groups who gather on a
regular basis to discuss their interaction with the study, by leadership teams, etc. Feel
free to adapt the materials to suit your needs.

This week’s materials:
