The Original Idea...
is simple; publishing truth-filled content that focuses on practical applications of living our original created design.
We are not a ministry school, worship school, or Bible school. There are no courses on performing better or imaging a better Christian life. We are interested in living our authentic selves in truth as we walk out the reality of our salvation.
When we began putting course ideas together, we quickly realized the content could not come from a pre-designed outline of "what people should know." Instead it needed to come from our own lives, what we are currently living and walking out, and what we have learned along the way.
We invite you to join us on this journey of stripping off our masks and things we think we know in order to pursue the reality in Christ.
Our approach to classes is as unique as the content. Many of our courses have come from sitting around a maple table in our kitchen and talking about what the Lord is showing us in the moment. The kitchen table seems to be the place where people gather most frequently in a home. It is the place where people can linger over good conversation and quality homemade food.
We have recognized that our kitchen table seems to operate as a hub in our life. It is a place for snacks and dinners as well as a stage for computers, art supplies, journals, puzzles, books, and projects in process. It offers a place where we and our friends can feel safe to share our hopes, dreams, fears, and reality checks.
There are many analogies between quality food and spiritual truths throughout the scripture. Our course topics will be presented within a range of snacks to a full course meal - like a banquet buffet table. Feel free to taste a bit of everything, and when something tastes VERY good, then explore it more. Sample it. Savor it. Enjoy it.
Hopefully you will find it as nourishing as you do tasty. We want to share the elements for life changes and growth in forms that we hope will be easy to assimilate.
Be prepared for many cooks in the kitchen and a menu that changes with the seasons.
