Breakaway Podcast: “Walking in the Light”
Options for related reading or study
John affirms that God is pure light. Even with our human tendency to sin, God provides a way for us to walk honestly with Him and other people.
Spending a minute or two in prayer before reading God’s Word or listening to a podcast can be helpful to calm your soul in a drum corps summer. A conversation with God can be simple, asking Him to understand how his truth applies to you. You can also ask Him to be working at your corps.

Respond - Personal Reflection & Obedience
Have you ever experienced the relief of honestly admitting your sin, anger, or doubt to someone, while still being loved by them?
Is there any present situation, here in drum corps or at home, that is a burden you need to confess? How will you do that?
Share - Focus Group Times
Schedule a short time with a small group (3-4 people is best) focused on your section, tour job, housing, or staff. You can have multiple Focus Group meetings each week, and combine with routines like stretching, eating, or dot-book work. You can read the Bible, pray together, use the Discovery Bible Study format, or use these discussion points below.
