Blog Tour: Intersect (DVD) by The Awaken Movement

Intersect: where your story and God's story converge is a DVD with five short films from individuals at different places in their lives, trying to make sense of how God fits into their stories. It comes with a study guide to help facilitators lead groups, and also can be used by individuals watching the DVD by themselves. Each topic has a section in the study guide where thought-provoking questions are asked and Scripture related to the stories are shared.

I liked hearing about the topics covered (Expectations, Rest, Disappointment, Trust, Control), since probably most everybody deals with them at some point in their lives. I definitely can understand how circumstances make people doubt God is present in their lives and in the midst of their problems, which I have gone through at times. The part I liked the most on this DVD is where one of the people that was sharing a story used an Ezekiel 37 Scripture about dry bones coming alive; that has been a current theme in my life and I am so glad I ran into that on this DVD also.

I kind of felt like the study could've gone deeper for me but if most people who are/will be watching it are at a place where they are doubting God is with them in their circumstances then it might be just the right amount of film coverage and questions that are asked. Some people also might be at a place where they have not accepted God and his son Jesus (Yeshua) into their lives yet and cannot take anything really deep.

I liked hearing about the Biblical examples in Scripture that were shared. They showed me that God's stories from Scripture converged with their's; and Biblical examples like that from thousands of years ago cannot lose their meaning to any generation.

This is a great resource to help people understand what people that are doubting God is in their circumstances are going through!

I received this DVD free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

My review= 5 out of 5 stars

More about the Intersect DVD:

Intersect DVD (Awaken Movement, July 2015)

Follow the journey of five individuals as they tell authentic stories of circumstances that have forced them to examine how God might fit into their lives.

This five-week small group resource helps spark spiritual conversations. Starting spiritual conversations with those outside of the church is a worthy, yet often difficult and intimidating task. Intersect was designed to help overcome those barriers. It is an easy-to-use resource, perfect for sharing with co-workers, friends, neighbors, and family to enter into meaningful conversations.

Each film is accompanied by thought-provoking questions designed to encourage participants to examine the world in which they live and the life they are pursuing, always ending with a conversation on how Jesus intersects the current topic. Allow this powerful new film resource to engage those you are in relationship with and then propel them forward in their next step with Jesus.
