The Mercy Journey Workbooks
In this contentious climate, when it seems like the loudest voice often wins, it can be tempting to root faith expression in having the right ideas, the clearest doctrine, the best arguments. But the call of the gospel is to be like Jesus, who modeled faith in both word and deed. More than ever, it is urgent for Christians to be not only messengers of truth but also ministers of mercy.
Barna, in partnership with The Reimagine Group, conducted a study about modern understanding and representations of mercy. The results inspired more questions about how Christians should—practically—be merciful in their personal spheres of influence. For example: How can business leaders impart relief or compassion through their policies, meetings and products? What can parents do to better practice forgiveness and cultivate kindness with their children and in their homes?
Barna has developed these workbooks to deepen your experience of The Mercy Journey and explore some of its primary themes and findings as they relate to your daily interactions and decisions, in the context of family and the workplace. These workbooks are designed to first inspire reflection and then action, moving outward from our hearts, to our homes, to our churches and, finally, to our communities.
