Sacred Secrets is a 5 (or 6) session study and it’s a little different than you might be used to experiencing. With video captured from a Living Proof Live event in Greensboro, North Carolina, this has some of the feel of being at a Friday night, Saturday morning conference. In fact, it could be used for a weekend retreat, although the study journal is primarily designed to be used over the 5 week period.
Sacred Secrets finds its theme verse in Psalm 51:6: “Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.” The topic is very compelling and will be a powerful experience for many. The opening session cracks open the doorway to an intriguing and quite powerful idea; that although “the world is obsessed with telling secrets for the sake of sensationalism, not all hidden things are poisonous and dark. Some secrets are forgiven, some are covered, and some are kept between you and God (from the jacket).”
The Sacred Secrets Study Journal includes a viewer guide (designed to help guide the participant through each of video sessions) as well as a journal section to independently work through the teaching through the week. Each journal section includes word studies, stimulating questions and scripture passages to take participants deeper into the topic.
I loved Beth’s closing paragraph in the introduction to the study journal:
“My prayer is that you will go beyond what can be accomplished at an event and walk forward into a relationship with Christ that is exceedingly more intimate and rewarding. May God invite you to embrace a while new journey, with Him in the secret places where He longs for you to find him.”
I can confidently tell you this: however you make this study available, whether at a weekend retreat or a short-term Bible study, there is a powerful impact that is built-in. In fact, I’ll go a little further. This is life-changing stuff and will no doubt alter some trajectories. Personally…I can’t wait to see what it does!
