Part 1: Shalom and a Just Society

Beginning with the beauty and goodness set forth at Creation and the brokenness brought forth in the Fall, the first installment of this series looks at God’s continued pursuit of wholeness and shalom for God’s people, even as God’s people continue to look to idols, kings, and their own strength for their salvation.

From Levitical laws and the Exodus, to the lives of Samson, Daniel, Ruth, Esther, and the first of Israel’s kings, Shalom and a Just Society shows us God’s unchanging vision for shalom. Over the course of this 28-day journey, your community will clearly see the truth of how idolatry in one heart leads to injustice for a whole community, while faithful choices in one life leads to flourishing for generations.

  • Week 1 – God’s Vision for a Just Society
  • Week 2 – God’s Plan for Shalom
  • Week 3 – Sorrow and Shalom in the Promised Land
  • Week 4 – Israel Rejects God As King

Part 2: A Savior and a New Society

The second part of this series begins with Solomon and the choices he made that led to the divided kingdom of Israel and exile. Your group will read the longing and laments of the prophets and be renewed with hope at the coming of the promised Savior and his earthly ministry. This study will ground your understanding of justice and reconciliation in God’s invitation to partner in pursuing healing and shalom, with the gift of the Holy Spirit and the eternal perspective that all things will be made new.
