TODAY: Are we "hung up" on the "good ole days?" (Nooma Series #17)"
Author: Rob Bell
How much energy do we spend on wishing things were how they used to be? We often think about times in our past when things were different and want our lives to be like that again. Some of us have come to believe that our best days may actually be behind us. But if we're in some way hung up on the past, what does that mean for our lives now? How are we and those around us affected if we're not fully present? If we're longing for the way things used to be, what does that really say about our understanding and appreciation of our lives today? Maybe we need to learn to embrace our past for what it is, in order to live our lives to the fullest, right here, right now. What is a Nooma®? It's not a book or a cassette tape... and it's not a CD or a two-hour movie. It's a new series of short films, between 10 and 14 minutes long, about God and our lives. Since its limited online release in November 2002, Noomas have had an incredible impact on millions of people. Rob Bell, a leading pastor and breakthrough communicator in the Christian community, uses the experiences of our lives to illustrate the fullness of life through Jesus... tackling issues like forgiveness, discipleship, and unconditional love. This new series is appropriate for personal and small group settings, congregational meetings, and much more. Each Nooma includes a 32-page discussion guide with relevant questions and biblical references to encourage meaningful discussion.
