Welcome to the official portal for the workshop series Makes You Wonder, by Ian Robinson.
Here you will find a whole bunch of exercises that really do empower people. People report that it helps them to find their one voice with their own faith for their own worlds.
It is a unique, international resource, going where no other faith-sharing course goes. Recently, you may have read a few books that are starting to see the need for this, yet it has been here already, a secret revealed!
With the mobile app now in the hands of anyone with a smart phone, MYW transforms the culture and cringe around evangelism in just one year. With some groups it only takes 30 minutes! Strange but true.
Let me see honestly that Makes You Wonder takes you way beyond a mere ‘awareness of the need’ for a fresh, authentic, culturally relevant way of conversations in faith-sharing. It takes you there. It relieves the burden of guilt, false smiles and failing public events. Click on the video below to see how it started quite by accident.
This holds no magic, no role-plays, no selling techniques. It is sort of unimpressive. But when you lead an exercise, it holds a mirror up to the people who are with you and they in their ‘ordinary extraordinary’ way, will be seen to be bearers of the light. MYW began in a high-density high-stress low-income city, worked wonders at the beach, grew a few different kinds of churches and has blessed twenty two language groups that we know of.
It works as a leaders course (Makes You Wonder in four series) that changes your capacity, culture and confidence.
Makes You Wonder is also constructed as shorter small-group booklets for church groups or Purple Cow Workshops or , for secular groups Wonder Workshops.
