watch The Heart of Man Film and take a group through the Guide
The Heart of Man is a docu-drama weaving together documentary interviews and the parable of the prodigal son, set in Hawaii. This film invites us as sons and daughters to rediscover how God sees us in the midst of our brokenness and rebellion, and invites us all to the banquet the Father is throwing. Follow this film with the study guide, designed to be used individually, as a group, or as a discipleship tool, to dive deeper into how we relate to the Father and how we view ourselves.
read The Cure
The Cure explores the difference between pleasing and trusting God, and the importance of trusting God and others with yourself. This book, told partly through narrative and partly through teaching, touches on our view of God, sin cycles, forgiveness, friendship, destiny, and much more.
Steps along the path:
While reading The Cure, follow the included study guide at the back of the book (you can view the cinema clips here).
