As part of their responsibilities as an Emerging Leader, each cohort member will participate in and complete various projects within their two years. The first project that all cohorts will complete is entitled “The Gospel Project.” In January, a small Trailblazer Cohort (young adults aged 21-29 years old) started and were given their Gospel Project assignment shortly after. This Connector group was assigned the gospel of Luke and given the following two instructions.
The intention behind this project is to create space for these young adults to read, reflect, and interact with their gospel in a unique way. Having the cohort think outside the box when interacting with scripture and learning how to work as a cohort to complete a given task.
The January Trailblazer Cohort chose to represent the gospel of Luke through both an inductive and translation comparison bible study.
Quoted below is Alex Bloss, a Trailblazer from this cohort, reflecting back on her work with the gospel of Luke.
“Reading an entire Gospel felt daunting. I wanted to read it critically but also wanted to receive what God wanted me to from it. Once I started reading, it wasn’t hard to do both. I ended up taking more time reading through Luke than I was expecting because I kept rereading the passages that I got stuck on. There were sections I’d never read before and quite a few that were familiar. It’s something I could see myself doing again with another book of the Bible.”
