Find Your Place in the Story Welcome to Starting Point---a journey of discovering the broad arch of God's story and where you fit into the narrative. Whether you are new to the Christian faith, simply curious about it, or reexamining it after time away from church, you'll appreciate the accepting, conversational, small group environment. Come as you are, be who you are, and build enriching connections with fellow travelers as you explore who God is and what Christianity is really about. Starting Point is a natural, enjoyable, and potentially life-changing experience. Each of the ten sessions consists of three important parts: First, selecting one of the five CDs that come with this Conversation Guide, you'll listen to a teaching by Andy Stanley. Second, you'll use this guidebook to help you reflect, and to journal your thoughts on how what you're discovering connects with your life---with who you are, how you think, what you believe...with the things that matter most to you. Finally, in your weekly group meeting, you'll have the opportunity to share your thoughts and experiences with fellow travelers in a supportive environment that is designed to enhance sharing and connection. From Creation across history and into the future---from the book of Genesis to the book of Revelation---God's story is a story of relationship, and your name is in it. Welcome to the journey of finding out how the story started...where it ends...and how God's story and your story unite.
