It’s September and the physical seasons are changing and so it is a great opportunity to look at how we can prepare for and embrace new seasons well.



In this podcast Jo and Steph discuss the 4 Rs of stepping into a new season:



1) Review


2) Release


3) Receive Revelation


4) Respond



Discussion questions:


1) Review: Do you have regular planned times to review the different areas of your life? Can you plan in some time this week and in the coming months to review?



2) Release: What things do you need to release from the last season? Which of those things are painful to release and which are celebrations? Are there any helpful rituals (journalling, photos, stone throwing etc.) that can help you engage with releasing those things?



3) Receive Revelation: How can you create some space in your life this week to spend some time thinking with God? When can you plan in a walk or some time with a journal, bible and pen or a whiteboard this week to think through the next season? Who can you discuss and be accountable with about the ideas you have?



4) Respond: What needs rearranging in your life right now to enable you to embrace the new things of this season well? What new things are on the horizon since the beginning of the year which mean you need adjustments in your plan?
