Selah Moments | Small Group Package
Life is busy and the constant demands on us can feel overwhelming. Amid the blur of frenzy, it’s easy to lose heart and clarity.
Slowing down feels like a luxury we can’t afford and in all the noise, we no longer know how to be present with God and in what He is doing in our lives. The result is we can end up feeling like a spectator of our own life rather than an active mindful participant.
The Psalmists beckon our awareness, inviting us to Selah. Some 73 times, the Psalms are punctuated by this curious and often oddly-placed term. Rather than forming an integral part of the narrative, Selah was a technical, musical-directive that allowed for a pause—an interruption to, or an accentuation of, the lyrics. Selah pauses were designed to give us a moment to stop and ponder the importance and truth of what had just been said.
In this Bible study which can be adapted to run for five, six, or ten weeks, we’ll explore the first twelve of the Selah Psalms, digging into their background and the specific uses of these intentional sacred pauses. We’ll accept the authors’ invitations to break and reflect on the written words and our own narratives, as well as the beauty of God’s activity in them.
The Small Group Package Includes:
- A digital copy of the Selah Moments Study Guide that you can reproduce for your group members
- A bonus discussion guide with ideas for configuring the study to suit your group and additional questions
- Ten bonus teaching videos, 7-10min in length (Please note that these were originally produced for a Facebook study group and are not HD)
Your study and discussion guide will be sent to you digitally upon completion of your payment at checkout. Your videos will be sent via zip file within 24 hours of purchase. Please note that the contents of this package are only to be used by the church or organisation purchasing the package and are not to be forwarded to any other parties.
Should members of your group prefer to purchase a bound study guide, they can do so in the store.
