Sailing engages all the senses and requires an understanding of the natural processes in creation. It also allows for long, quiet times with others--free from distractions on land. Living in the Design draws upon parallels of God as revealed in the Scriptures with stories and life lessons of sailing. It is intended for use aboard a vessel but could be used on land. It can be studied by groups or individuals.
