Have you ever emerged on the other side of a big decision only to find that you didn’t consider what’s next? It’s easy to do.
- You take a new job opportunity but don’t consider the change to your schedule until it’s already changed.
- You enter a new relationship but don’t take into account the impact on your existing friends and family.
- You decide to denounce the Christian Atheist in you but don’t think through how your life will change.
And so we’re left to answer the question, “Now what?”
Before we can make the next big decision, we need two key ingredients – information and time.
I can’t think of a single person who wants to make a decision without the luxury of all the relevant information. We want to know the pros and cons. We want to know the cost and the benefits. Data allows us to make an informed decision. But where do we find the right information?
Time is also needed. If we’re forced to make a spit-second choice, we already know it isn’t likely we’re making the best choice. Not only is time required to collect information but it’s also needed to prepare ourselves to the impending change. But if we’re not careful, time has a way of getting away from us.
So where do information and time meet? At Faith Promise, it’s called enrichment groups. These short-term groups help you begin processing need-to-know information over a time line of six weeks. Each group experience helps answer key questions that we all face at least once, if not multiple times, in our lives, such as how do I manage my money so my money doesn’t own me or how do I know I can trust the Bible and make it relevant to my life? Ultimately, the decision is yours to make and enrichment groups merely provide the expertise and structured time to help you make the right choice for you.
Lucky for you, enrichment groups are launching on each campus on October 7th. For additional information and to sign up, check out the list of available groups. Don’t be paralyzed by the question, “Now what?”
