Product DescriptionThe Participant’s Book has helpful information about each week’s lesson. The scripture passages are included along with scripture notes, helpful insights into the text, and even daily Bible readings for personal study.
The Fall Quarter (September–November 2021) focuses on acts of worship and praise that celebrate both God’s divine attributes and God’s actions on behalf of the whole created order. The lessons of the Fall quarter draw on several examples of biblical people who celebrate God, psalms that give thanks for God’s benevolent actions, and visions of praise for God’s work in establishing an eternal realm of justice and righteousness. The first unit, “God’s People Offer Praise,” has four lessons looking at Moses and Miriam’s songs of praise for God’s mighty acts, at King David dancing before the ark, at “blind” Bartimaeus glorifying God for healing, and at early believers responding to the Pentecost event by entering into a life of praise for God’s redemption through Jesus. Unit II, “Called to Praise God,” contains five lessons exploring psalms that call God’s people to celebrate what God has done. “Visions of Praise,” the third unit, presents four lessons that share John’s visions of celebration for God’s ultimate victory in establishing a realm of justice and peace.
