The Wild Goose

 

The Wild Goose Series is fourteen independent segments dealing with different experiences of the Holy Spirit. For the most part, each segment stands on its own so you do not have to watch them in any particular order. However, the first three segments give a type of foundation to the others, so I would suggest that you start with these. After that, take a minute and ask the Spirit to lead you in what you should watch next. Listen to what the Spirit says and go with that!

“The Holy Spirit is the True hope of the world.”
– P o p e S t. J o h n Pa u l I I –

While I certainly hope that you watch each segment, I would suggest that you not binge watch. Take your time working through the series. I can’t encourage this enough, take your time and pray at the conclusion of an episode. Each segment has a study guide that provides a very brief synopsis, key texts, discussion questions,and perhaps most importantly prayer and reflection ideas.

Please don’t dismiss this section. I believe the blessing of this series will be directly related to how you are able to quiet yourself and pray. We need to make ourselves available to God’s Spirit if we are going to be able to more fully experience his loving presence. Also, consider having a prayer journal where you can jot down thoughts and reflections as you make your way through the Wild Goose series.
