I think we’re still figuring that out. The basic idea is the same as it is for many members of RZIM Connect. We want to grow in our love for God and our neighbor. Connect is an opportunity for us to love our brothers and sisters in Christ as we compassionately, thoughtfully engage with their questions. In doing so, we help hundreds if not thousands of others who come to Connect with the same question. And we prepare ourselves to engage with that question in the rest of our lives.
So I can envision a community at a local church deciding to utilize the questions in Connect as a prompt to practice their own capacity to provide respectful, Biblical, well reasoned answers to not just the question but also the questioner. Each member could answer a given question during the week and then the community could discuss the conversation when they gather together, process what they learned, select another question to engage in, etc.
There is a way to have a private space within the platform. We do this on a limited basis but I’d be glad given your involvement in the EAP to set this up for you if you’d like to experiment!
