Howdy! I scanned in part of a Journey Guide that I use in a small group ministry I'm able to run now and again in my church.

It's Bible based material (hence the reason I'm posting it here), and deals with healing from abuse of all types.

This is chapter 10: My Journey of Redemption.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/55983680/Ch10-Redemption.pdf

It deals with the journey of redeeming your story, forgiveness, and reconciliation.

I share it here to hopefully help others.

Any questions etc, please let me know!

Thanks, JS!

good timing - it'll give me something positive to fill the void while the MS site is down!

I was thinking last night.... I wonder if there might be enough interest to start up a online grace group at some point?

Hmm..... I could easily get the books and mail them around. It's a 12 week commitment.

I am interested. Currently I have been going through a program through my church "Freedom in Christ" for Men and it uses the book "The Bondage Breaker" by Neil T. Anderson. Also a good book to go through. I have already gone through several steps of voicing and confiding in my friends and getting their support and feeling the freedom. And in turn it is helping me find the freedom in Christ as I continue my journey with Him.
Thanks for offering this guide, Scott

I've entered into a dialog with the Executive Director at Open Hearts Ministry about online groups.

Guess we'll see where this goes!

A Grace group is basically just a small group (no more than 4 to 6 participants not including 2 leaders) that works through the Journey Guide (kinda like a really BIG workbook) together.

There's an expectation of privacy (what's shared in group stays in group), and there's work to do every week.

It's a 12 week (12 Chapters in the book) program. A Scan of Chapter 10 is in the thread above. You can find more information from the producers of the material at: www.ohmin.org

I think they also have a place to look for finding a local group (typically Grace Groups are face to face) and also have a number to call where they can try to give you some local contacts.

I'm currently working toward trying to get an online group going, but have quite a few logistics and even the need for a co-leader in order to get it off the ground.

Hopefully soon, but finding and training a Co-Leader is my biggest hurdle right now.
