Home Spirit Group Views Flame

Flame was the first DVD we viewed and discussed while sitting at Panera Bread on Route 1 South. Heather brought her laptop and we huddled around the speakers while watching the short biblical presentation of the meaning of the word LOVE according to the manner which God would intend it. We shared a lot about ourselves in the discussion.

Some folks might think that an atmosphere like Panera Bread would be distracting. We actually found it quite liberating because we each could buy something to drink or eat, depending on our need at that moment. Plus, our viewing the DVD did not in any way disturb the people around us, since there is so much going on.

We plan to avoid Wednesday evenings since some choir members expressed interest in attending. Next month, we will announce the gathering time and date at Panera Bread again. December is full with lots of special activities, so we will wait for January to continue.

We hope that a few more will be willing to try this new style of Bible Study. Please note that any one can attend at any time since each DVD is individual and does not anticipate any knowledge or preceding discussion.
