 Description: Every day we see that things are not right in our world, and as followers of Jesus Christ, we have an impulse to do something about it. We long to connect our passions and gifts with the world's great needs, making a unique contribution for the healing of the world. In this six session study, author James A. Harnish helps you answer two questions:

How can I contribute to God's healing work in this world?
How can I find my place to serve and make a difference?

Drawing on biblical wisdom and stories of real people who have found their place to serve, Harnish provides practical guidance to help every disciple make a difference as a participant in God's transformation of the world. Designed for anyone who desires to engage service or mission as a vital part of discipleship, find a place to serve in the church, the community and/or the world, and engage in God's work in the world, the study features lively discussions with the author and conversational partners, Nick Cunningham, Lindsey Krinks, D.J. del Rosario, and Lisa Yebuah, who highlight the opportunities and outcomes of making a difference in this world.

Appropriate as a Lenten study or for any other six week period, the study covers:
1. Awakening (13:15 min) – what shall we do?
2. Who Are These People? (12:46 min) – finding pure happiness through service
3. Children, Go Where I Send You (11:53 min) – how to change through spiritual disciples
4. Go Together (12:57 min) – you are not alone
5. Into the Crucible of Pain and Hope (12:48 min) – the possibilities of sacrifice
6. From Here to Kingdom Come (14:30 min) – what will we do now?
