I’ve been getting to know a fascinating new study developed by Spread Truth called Life As We Know It. If you’ve been along for much of the journey here, you know I review a lot of small group studies. I have to say Life As We Know It is easily one of the most intriguing new small group experiences I’ve seen in several years.

The powerful idea that makes this study so interesting is that everybody has a story. Further, “sharing stories is foundational to community and the meaningful relationships we all long for.”
Because Life As We Know It is not a Bible study, it is well-suited for use with neighbors, friends and co-workers as well as small groups and ministry teams. In my mind, the fact that it is designed to “facilitate gatherings where the art of storytelling is practiced and deeper relationships are forged” is one of the genius elements of the experience.
There are a number of very cool aspects that will make this an easy invite. From the simple invitations to the Story Books and Questions in a Box, the materials have a very good feel. The four sessions in the Story Book are designed to produce an engaging conversation. I really like the simple design. Not too slick, the Story Books keep the focus on interaction. The Host Box includes a set of conversation starting questions (a free app is also available at questionsinabox.com).
I really can imagine Life As We Know It being a key to building relationships in all kinds of places and and all kinds of groups. Not the usual prefab Bible study, some host training could be an advantage, but not essential. Keeping in mind that simply getting to know the stories of neighbors, co-workers, friends and family will open the door to entirely new experiences…I’m loving thinking about the doors of opportunity this study will open.
