Statistics reveal an unsettling exodus from the church by younger people who are 'spiritual but not religious.' This is no passing trend---but there is great hope. Led by author Dan Kimball, the six interactive sessions in this small group DVD with participant's guide will help you explore and respond truthfully, caringly, and engagingly to six of the most common objections and misunderstandings emerging generations have about the church and Christianity. Through interviews with emerging non-Christians and teaching by Dan Kimball, this video-based curriculum will help churches address these objections. Includes discussion questions and resource listings. Six sessions consist of: 1. Why emerging generations are changing 2. Objection #1: The church is an 'organized religion' with a political agenda; Objection #2: The church is judgmental and negative 3. Objection #3: The church is male dominated and oppresses females 4. Objection #4: The church is homophobic 5. Objection #5: The church feels Christianity is right and all other religions are wrong 6. Objection #6: The church is full of 'fundamentalists' who take the Bible too literally. They Like Jesus but Not the Church Curriculum Kit includes one small group DVD-ROM, one participant's guide.
