The Wisdom House
You bring the people … and we’ll get the conversations going!
The Wisdom House is a DVD-led resource based on Rob Parsons’ book The Wisdom House. There are eight stand-alone sessions taken from various chapters of the book.
Who is it for?
These sessions are designed to help you build genuine friendships with people and begin to really listen to each other as you chat about everyday life issues. Churches may find this product particularly useful as a way of gathering folk in their community. Most of the content is about general wisdom and is accessible to people with or without faith. However, we have provided a couple of deeper/spiritual questions in each session which can be used if the group leader feels they are appropriate for the group.
The sessions can be used with evening functions or daytime events and may be of particular help to already existing networks, such as, mums and toddler groups, men’s groups and 20’s & 30’s groups. And they would certainly be great way of forming new groups.
Who can run The Wisdom House?
You don’t need any training to run The Wisdom House. If you are someone who enjoys talking and listening to others and bringing out the best in them then you will probably enjoy running these sessions. You are not expected to be an expert or to have all the answers; the sessions are about talking and learning together.
Each session stands alone making this a completely flexible resource – you can pick and choose to run any number, in any order.
Each session features:
- Introduction by Diane Louise Jordan
- Animated personal story
- Topic talk by Rob Parsons
- Fulfilling your dreams
- Difficult people
- The nature of love
- Living a life true to yourself
- The story of the prodigal son
- Finding contentment
Along with the DVD you’ll get a 40-page Group Leader’s Guide with suggested questions to get the conversations started.
You won’t need The Wisdom House book to run a session, but you may like to have it to hand. Get your copy here.
