LivingRoom Ignites

3 August, 2005 11:03 PM

I really enjoyed our LivingRoom gathering tonight. We decided a couple of weeks ago to go through the Ignition course again. I say 'again' because it's a course the original LivingRoom group did 2.5 years ago as founding members. Only V and I have ever done it from out group though so it seemed appropriate to go back and do it again.

For those of you who are not long term readers - Ignition is a 12 week course that walks a small group of people through the book of Acts. It looks at principles of Mission and gives a framework for participants to look at their own missional context by identifying a 'missional exploration or experiment' to reflect upon as they read Acts.

Each week there is a little reading and a reflection to do as individuals before coming together to discuss a different missional principle.

I've done it twice now and found it incredible helpful - especially as a new group meeting together and forming identity as its essentially an extended reflection on the first church and how they formed.

Did you all write the Ignition course? Where did you find it if you didn't write it?
Thanks!

Ignition was written by a guy named Mark Sayers who is part of a network here in Melbourne named Forge. It used to be sold online but now only directly from him. I can pass on his email if people are interested. let me know if you want to know how to contact him to buy copies of Ignition.

Sounds great! We had a good time exploring and sharing our Inner Journeys too.

I've written a review of Ignition at www.educatingchristians.blogspot.com which includes where to get hold of it.

I've read the free introductory chapter, and was wondering if there is any further elaboration or suggestions on the "missional experiment" in the rest of the material. I would like to try leading a group through Ignition, but am afraid that if I say "missional experiment" people will stare at me as if I just said something in Latin.

hmmm... sounds pretty interesting, i think i will have to talk with my group about it, sounds like something good for where we are at

Why not simply a study on the book of Acts itself? That is to say: What does the course offer alongside Acts, that could not be revealed through Luke's book itself?

Good question Brad. Studying the book of Acts by itself would also be a good thing. The beauty of this course is that it focusses the participant not only up Acts but upon their real life and wider culture. It's at this intersection of thought that interesting things come about.
