Why choose Animate: Practices?
Focus on building conversation
Use videos—which blend live action with animations—to introduce a question, provide a thought-provoking perspective, and beckon discussions.
Offer a hands-on experience
Supplement discussions with the Animate: Practices Journal, which encourage participants to sketch, doodle, create, and share, as well as continue the discipline throughout the week.
Listen to contemporary voices
Gain perspectives on prayer, food, worship, sacraments, money, service, and community from seven Christian thought leaders.
Make it easy for leaders
Allow leaders to guide conversations, giving them the tools they need to engage groups, let them explore and even participate in discussions.
How it works
In each Animate: Practices session, the group will watch a video featuring a leading voice from the Christian faith, spend time on personal reflection and journaling, and share ideas with the group. The order of the session is up to you and what works best for your group. Session resources are available as a complete curriculum or a la carte.
Each Animate course explores a key topic in seven sessions. Download a summary of course contents.
