Surprise the World! Lent 2018 Video Study

This Lent (February 14-April 1), the Bishop and Cabinet invite all Minnesota United Methodists to take on some intentional practices of being generous, hospitable, Spirit-led Christ-like missional people that surprise the world. Beginning on February 15th, each week in the MN Connect e-newsletter, we will post a new video introducing these practices, based on Michael Frost’s book Surprise the World: Five Habits of Highly Missional People. We will also include a link to scripture and reflection questions weekly.

We encourage congregations to purchase copies of the book ($4.99 on Cokesbury.com), and to form small groups to journey together as a DNA (discipleship, nurture, accountability) group during Lent. A small group study guide for each week can be downloaded at minnesotaumc.org/surprisetheworld-resources.

And then tell the stories of what happens as you engage in these five practices by posting on social media with the hashtag #surprisetheworld! Let’s start a movement!

Surprise the World! Week 1: Cindy Gregorson

"Did you know that the early Christian movement was rather scandalous? It broke many of the social mores of the day. Jews hung out with Gentiles. Women were involved in leadership...."

Rev. Cindy Gregorson, director of ministries, introduces us to this year's Lenten study video series with the cabinet of the Minnesota Annual Conference UMC. Each week, a new video will guide us into a chapter from Michael Frost's book, Surprise the World!

The videos can all be downloaded to share with your study group or entire congregation. A small group study guide for each week can be downloaded at minnesotaumc.org/surprisetheworld-resources.
