Getting started with
Jesus the Forgiving Victim:
Listening for the Unheard Voice!
We are delighted to welcome you to the online Jesus the Forgiving Victim community! You are joining a global conversation taking part in the Discussion Forums that accompany each of the videos. Here’s how the course is structured.
You will move through the four parts of the course in sequence:
Part 1: Starting human, staying human
Part 2: God, not one of the gods
Part 3: The difference Jesus makes
Part 4: Unexpected insiders
Each part is divided into modules that correspond to the videos sessions. Part 1 has 5 modules, Part 2 has 6 modules, and Parts 3 and 4 each have 10 modules. And each module has an accompanying Discussion Forum for conversations, reflection, and raising questions.
The first step on your journey is to learn your way around the course. This video provides navigation tips and everything you need to know to take advantage of all the resources available to you.
Participating in the online community
The next step on your journey is to engage with the online community. The course began as a way for small groups to relax into receiving their security and unity from the presence of the risen and forgiving victim. In other words, discovering the shape of what it means to create and participate in community – what Jesus called the church – is one of the pleasures of taking this course. To offer online participants the same experience, we have created Discussion Forums where you can share your questions and discoveries with one another. We hope you will see that sharing in the forums and watching the videos are part of a satisfying whole that will yield a rich and meaningful experience for you.
When you registered for the course, you created your profile. As part of your profile, you were asked to answer the question, “What prompted you to take this course?” Please feel free to edit or expand your answer as you go through the course. When you participate in the Discussion Forums, your profile will travel with you and you’ll be able to see the profiles of others in the discussion. Welcome to the community of Jesus the Forgiving Victim!
