How to participate in The Compassion Journey with a group:

The Compassion Journey is a valuable experience for individuals, but best experienced with a group. We’d encourage you to participate with your family, church small group, or a few friends.

Here are some tips to get the most out of this event and bring your favorite people closer together.

  • If circumstances allow, gather your family or friends around a larger screen. A laptop or tablet works great, or you can cast the event to a TV or large monitor. Take some time to answer the discussion questions and talk about what you’re feeling as you watch together.
  • If you can’t be together in person, have one person register for access and invite your friends to watch together through your favorite video meeting service. Have a host go through the journey and share the screen with the group. Talk through the questions together, or use the chat feature if your group is on the larger side.
  • If your schedules don’t match up, send the link to this page out to everyone you’d like to invite. Everyone can register individually and view on their own time. Start an email thread or social media chat to talk about the experience and answer the discussion questions together.
