Recover Your Good Heart study, On for Sunday!

A few weeks ago we began doing an online study of Jim Robbins' study guide for his book Recover Your Good Heart. After taking a break last week due to some football game that was going on (!), we'll pick up where we left off a couple of weeks ago. This week we'll be discussing the questions from Chapter 3. If you don't have the book or study guide, that's fine... we've been having some wonderful participation from people who have read the book and from those who haven't. You're more than welcome to join us this week and any week. If you're shy about something like this, no worries! There's no pressure - just come and hang out with us and read along with our Yahoo chat. So far we've had groups ranging from 4 to 10 people at a time.

There are several reasons I wanted to do this study. First off, the book itself contains some really great stuff regarding the new heart/spirit that God has placed in us as new creations in Christ. Also, whether or not people agree on every last detail of all of this, I believe it's a very encouraging thing to build one another up in our true identity in Christ. The study guide contains some great questions and discussion topics that help to spur this type of discussion.

The chat starts at 7pm Eastern, 4pm Pacific and goes for about an hour or a little longer. We're using Yahoo Messenger. My id is jsbreeze111. If you'd like to be a part of this study, simply add me as one of your contacts at any time (identifying yourself so I know you're legit. I'll sign on 15 to 30 minutes before the start of each study. When you log on, please 'buzz' me or send me an IM to let me know that you want to be a part of the study, and I'll invite you into the main chat.


  1. Joel - I enjoyed it greatly yesterday. Thanks for taking this initiative. As I was lying down on my bed to sleep, I was still laughing about some of the jokes in the conversations. :) I felt the conversation was very authentic. Again, thank you and thank you all participants!

  2. Bino,

    It was great having you along! I have felt the same thing as you... the conversations have really been authentic, and fun as well! Indeed, thanks to you and everyone else!
