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 2: Cynthia Williams

"As God’s people, Christ followers, we have been created to bless. We have been called into relationship with God to be a blessing...."

Rev. Cynthia Williams, superintendent of the River Valley District, brings us her insights into chapter two, Bless: the First Habit.

Each week, a new video will guide us into a chapter from Michael Frost's book, Surprise the World! The Five Habits of Highly Missional People. 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.
