Community UMC in Debary will be hosting the Power of a Whisper Campaign September 11- October 8, 2011. The four week campaign includes worship services and small group discussions based on Bill Hybels’ book of the same name. For more information or to view the sermons online, go to www.cumcdebary.org
The following reading plan is designed to accompany the campaign. You’re invited to read along, keep a journal, and join the online discussion on this blog. Each week begins on a Sunday with the readings used for the sermon. Click here: Power of a Whisper Reading Plan
As you read, you are encouraged to use the SOAP Method for keeping a spiritual journal, as taught at New Hope Christian Fellowship in Hawaii.
