Group Study

 
 

We believe in the power of God to move us through music with a desire to go deeper.  We also believe that we need more than songs to grow and sustain our relationship with God.  Our hope is that the resources we've developed around our music will help you and your community continue that journey deeper into prayer and relationship with God.

 

LENT & EASTER

A deeply experiential journey into the penitence of Lent and the new life of Easter with music and artist reflections that point to an overarching theme of Christ' mission "To seek and to save the lost."

ADVENT & Christmas

An extensive contemplation of our need for a Savior and the mystery of the Incarnation explored through multiple mediums that accompany the journey through the seasons of Advent and Christmas

Pentecost

A powerful invitation and study of prayer to the Holy Spirit offered in collaboration with "The Wild Goose." Clear catechesis and beautiful art together prompt the simple and sincere prayer of Pentecost, "Come Holy Spirit." 

 
 

FAQ

Q1. What resources does TVP create in addition to music?

We create companion booklets for journeying in prayer through the Liturgical seasons of the Church, thematic artwork for reflection on the mysteries explored in our music, written reflections by the musical artists on the individual songs, short videos of catechetical teachings to increase understanding, and more. All of our content - music, art, video, writings, reflections - is themed and designed to work together to be a cohesive resource for prayer.

Q2. Who are these resources for?

You. Your family. Your Bible/spiritual study group. Your Church community. We’ve designed our content in such a way that it makes space for both deeper experiential encounter with God (primarily in the mediums of music, artwork, and video) and deeper growth in prayer and understanding of our Faith and relationship with Him (primarily through written resources and catechetical videos). In this way we hope to engage both the affect and the intellect in an ordered way that supports you at any stage of your spiritual journey.

Q3. How do I get the resources?

Most of our content can be downloaded directly from our website for free. Follow the links on this page to access the resources you’re interested in. Much of our content is also available for purchase in print and hardcopy forms. Visit the (store) for most of your needs or (contact us) if you need to make bulk orders or require additional assistance.

Q4. How should I format my group study for my community?

This depends mostly on the nature of your community since there are many different kinds of spaces for group study. It will be important for you to spend some time in prayer discerning the best way to use our content. To help jumpstart your thoughts on this, here are some examples of how others are using our resources:

Scripture study with music - Some Bible study groups have chosen to study the passages of Scripture associated with each of our songs for a given season (ie: Lent, Easter, Advent, Christmas). They pray through and discuss the passages, and listen to the associated song to facilitate a deeper, more prayerful experience that engages both the “head” and the “heart.”

Community-wide companion booklet study - Some Churches and worshiping communities have gifted copies (digital or print) of our booklets to their entire congregations and invited them to journey together through a given Liturgical season. Study is done primarily individually or as family units, then discussions are facilitated on a weekly basis either through in-person meetings at the church, or virtual meetings and discussion boards online.

Prayer vigils - Some groups have organized nights of prayer that include music, catechesis, and sacraments. Musicians who are part of the congregation play our music by accessing the published content we’ve created for them. When a musician is not available, some communities have played our recordings. Organizers set up a screen and show thematically appropriate video content, either from our resources or similar organizations, to engage participants in a common catechetical experience. This can lead to large or small group discussions if desired. Clergy facilitate the offering of sacraments (ie: Reconciliation, Eucharist, etc) and/or other forms of sacramental and communal prayer (ie: Eucharistic Adoration, healing prayer, etc).
