This article is one in a series on "Leaving the Message" - you are currently in the article that is in bold:

When we left the message, we did not know where to turn. We had been taught that anything outside of the message, was false. Was there truth anywhere to be found?

The following are resources that people referred us to, or that we found through searching that internet, that have been of significant spiritual benefit to us. We are not saying that they are perfect or that we agree with everything that they have to say. We are definitely not pointing to any man or organization. Rather, these resources have helped us in coming to grips with the problems we found in the message and have helped us draw closer to Christ:

The Alpha Course

We would highly recommend that you attend an Alpha course. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the historic Christian faith. It runs all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. Alphas generally have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation. And coming out of the message, those things are extremely helpful. You will also get a chance to meet some good non-message Christians who are simply trying to help people find out more about Jesus. You can watch the first episode of the course here.

You can find a church near you that puts on the Alpha course by clicking here.
