Summer Study Journal
Anything but Ordinary
Summer Study Journal
For the summer, we've crafted a 12-weeks-long study journal following the Abrahamic family narratives—messy stories fully of complexity and promise that often hold a mirror up to our current society, perhaps more than we'd like. To dig deep into these narratives, we've created a printable booklet that is part devotional, part scripture study, part personal journal.
Each week dives into one of these family stories through art, visio divina meditation, scripture study, artist reflections, creative writing prompts, and prayer. The beginning of the journal has planning pages to help you add a touch of organization to the events that fill your days. The journal is organized around the weeks of June 18-Sept 3, but we hope you will work through the weekly prompts at whatever pace/timeline you choose.
Abrahamic family stories featured:
A Child Promised to Abraham and Sarah
Hagar and Ishmael are Cast Away
The Binding of Isaac
The Marriage of Isaac and Rebekah
The Birth of Jacob and Esau
Jacob’s Dream at Bethel
Even if you're not following the RCL this summer, we hope this will be an engaging tool to print for your church members to use during their summer travels, vacation, and weekly devotions. BONUS: The content could easily be adapted into an adult Sunday School Series for the summer. You're welcome. ;)

The booklet prints on 28 color pages (14 pages double-sided) and is arranged to be folded in half to create a 5.5"x8.5" booklet.
