Sign Up Now to Touch the Light—1 John 1 {Create Your Own 6-Week Challenge}

UPDATE: The Fall 2021 challenge has now ended. But I still encourage to memorize this chapter using any of the free resources provided.

* * *

This fall let’s take an online walk together with Jesus, the Living Word, through 1 John 1.

“The Word of life existed from the beginning. We have heard it. We have seen it. We observed and touched it.”
1 John 1:1 (GW Translation)

For 6 weeks I’ll be posting on the blog and sending out resources via email to those who sign up for ways we can “touch the Light” of Jesus.

You choose your preferred approach to the text. You’ll receive resources to personalize your challenge. Mix and match any of the following:

Whatever your goal, we’ll be here for each other in community, providing encouragement, resources, and support in our encounters with Jesus. 

We’ll officially begin after Labor Day, but let’s begin preparing our hearts now.

Add your name to receive emails as resources become available beginning August 29.

      Our group is always richer when you participate in it, Michele. I’ve been reading through several of the versions lately for 1 John 1 and it really enhances my understanding to see the thought phrased slightly different each time.

      It’s been a lifesaver to me in many ways to have these truths about Jesus embedded in my mind. But especially at night when my mind starts to wander into anxious thoughts, I love being able to pull up a series of verses to do a hard reset back into reality instead of focusing on my craziness. 🙂

      Yes, it’s a favorite of mine, too. Of all the apostles, I think I’d like to sit down for counseling the most with John. 🙂 His gospel is my favorite of the four.

      That’s awesome, Joanne! It sounds like we’ll be on the same track. I definitely want to memorize the chapter too, and it helps me to internalize it more when I also mix in the other approaches.

    I’ve just signed up and I’m looking forward to hearing the other versions of 1 John 1. I’ve enjoyed everyone’s comments and it sounds like a lot of friendship will be included in this group. Thanks for doing this!

    It’s been awhile since I’ve been by, Lisa, as I haven’t been blogging much. (Well, actually, I was, but I was writing a private blog for awhile.) And lo and behold, I come back to community and discover this fantastic study to be part of. I LOVE being part of online studies. I am going to read in 3 different translations (NLT, ESV, NIV84), plus I will memorize the chapter. I recently memorized the entire book of James, so I’m thinking this first chapter of John will set me on the path to memorizing that apostle’s words as well.

      Patti! It’s good to hear from you again. I’m so glad you found our group; you’ll be a wonderful asset. I’m encouraged by your ability to memorize so much. I learned the first chapter of James a few years back, and I still review it because I want to hold on to it. God’s love and grace that I find in the verses I memorize have pulled me out of many middle-of-the-night worry sessions. 🙂
