Following the example of the 'Society Rooms' of the late 1600's and the Clapham Circle of the early 1800's, Q Society Rooms are designed to gather small groups of leaders to dialogue, learn, and work together to explore how to express the Christian faith in a post-Christian culture. A Participant's Book, Leader's DVD and Guide, and a group project complete the Q Society experience, which will challenge every participant's innermost beliefs and pre-conceived ideas about life, faith, the world, and cultural responsibility.
In Being Countercultural: Our Posture in a Changing Society
, host Gabe Lyons and DVD presenters Andy Crouch and Mike Foster explore how Christians need to live in contrast to the ways of the world. In this Q Society Room experience, each individual and the group as a whole are challenged to return to a biblical way of life. In a harsh, sinful world, you can live counter-culturally by practicing discernment, showing grace, and valuing responsibility.
Lyons and Norton Herbst then help individuals and the group as a whole explore---through short articles by noted authors, transcripts from Q Talks (included in the Leader's DVD and Guide), five meetings to discuss important topics related to the overall theme, and thought-provoking questions---a biblical perspective on living a countercultural life in an out-of-control world.
Meetings are divided among video, group reading, and group activity or project. Being Countercultural: Our Posture in a Changing Society
group meetings include:
- One: Being Countercultural
- Two: Stripping Away the Veneer
- Three: Power, Privilege, and Risk
- Four: People of the Second Chance
- Five: Culture Shaping Project and Debrief
Pack containing one softcover guide and one DVD. Join popular cultural and faith leaders in these five-session DVD studies that will challenge your innermost beliefs and preconceived ideas about life, faith, the world and cultural responsibility.
