Reformation at Home

As some of our tag-lines suggest, we want our partners and supporters to apply the Reformation insights they've gleaned from White Horse Inn and Modern Reformation to their own circles of influence. Recently, one of our partners in the Pacific Northwest worked with us to design and purchase space on a billboard near her home.



 

The billboard was a significant investment of time and money. Maybe you aren't in a position to do something so dramatic, but you still want to see Reformation take root with your family and friends. Here are a few other ideas that our partners have developed as a way to bring the Reformation home:

  • host your own Conversations for a Modern Reformation: after a few of the guests on our recent cruise experienced a series of conversations about the challenges facing the church they began hosting their own conversations. What sorts of insights would you glean by convening a conversation made up of Christians from different churches in your town? Once you've identified some of the challenges, can you also come up with some of the answers?

  • sponsor White Horse Inn on a local radio station: some partners and partnering churches purchase airtime on a local station (sometimes for less than $75 per episode) and also include their own commercial for a church or study group before or after the broadcast. A few of our partner-sponsored broadcasts include: KDJS in Minnesota, KPXQ in Arizona, and WTIB/WNBU in North Carolina.

  • help lead a White Horse Inn discussion group: using materials from the White Horse Inn, these discussion groups allow you to join the conversation with the White Horse Inn hosts. Groups have been formed all across the U.S. Some meet every week, some meet less often. Do whatever works best for the folks in your group. Click here for more information on starting a group.

  • purchase and distribute bulk subscriptions to Modern Reformation magazine: a number of churches give Modern Reformation away for free on their book tables. Some Sunday school teachers develop lessons from previous year-long themes and copy articles to pass out to their class. Take advantage of our pastor's subscription price of only $16, which includes a special bulk subscription deal.

  • do you know someone who needs to (re)learn the meaning of grace? Go through the 20th Anniversary edition of Putting Amazing Into Grace with them using the new DVD study. For groups of 1 to 100, this DVD will walk you through the main parts of Mike Horton's best-known book. All you have to do is push "play"!

    A few years ago, while living in Germany, we hosted a monthly "Reformation Night." We started out with just a hand full of people and within a few months it grew to 22 people crammed into our smallish military quarters. Listening to the WHI as a group encouraged all of us beyond belief.

    The best part was how God graciously saved one person by way of our group! This person was brought to faith because he saw other Soldiers who took their faith seriously. In other words, we knew what we believed.....

    Keep up the good work.

  • Interesting you point (with a link) to the 'Putting Amazing into Grace' DVD, but when I went there, it is out of stock.

    J B -

    Sorry for the mixup. We have had a number of orders come through in the past few days that depleted our inventory. We have added a few more copies to the store (with lots more on the way) so order one soon!!

  • I think that this was a sign - literally - for me to start discussions with people about the gospel outside of a formal church environment. Thanks for the post. I will consider it carefully.

    By the way, I would greatly appreciate more posts that provide advice on how to evangelize the unchurched, the dechurched, and the semi-churched. By the "semi-churched", I mean those who love Jesus and regularly attend church, but who are put off by theology and doctrine. I have run into a lot of these Christians lately, and it is difficult to start a conversation with them. In particular, many of them have seemed afraid that I was going to conduct a Reformed version of the Inquisition. Ugh. Any advice would be great.

    Maybe a poster set is another great way to spread word? ^^v

    Ever since I listened to this program in my first year in college, my faith has been strengthened through the fruits of your discussions! For me, it was such a revolution and I shared this program with my brothers and sisters in Christ that I knew at the time!

    To Leslie:
    I gave one of my sisters in Christ at my college a copy of Putting Amazing Back into Grace and played an episode of WHI when we were heading out to lunch one time. I'm running into TONS of "semi-churched" Christians at my college, one of whom is the aforementioned friend. When you have a chance, maybe give them a copy of the book as a gift or play them an episode (maybe one of the first episodes)? I'll keep your endeavors in my prayers.

  • Thanks so much for the prayers Kenneth. I will pray for your efforts too. I will also pray that God will use the White Horse Inn to bring people to faith.

    I was recently asked to help start a small group that would likely consist in large part of semi-churched Christians. I will propose that we read "Putting Amazing Back into Grace". I will also propose that we listen to the WHI. I will check out some of the early episodes. Thanks.

    I saw this billboard when I was on vacation! I-205 somewhere around Gladstone/Oregon City heading toward Sunnyside. Great idea!

    By the way, for any WHI listeners in the Portland area, Redeemer Lutheran Church in Gresham is a wonderful congregation. Solid law/gospel preaching, the historic liturgy of the Church, and the Sacraments. Can't hope for any better in this life.
