Obedience follows a slightly different format than the other CCO studies. The first three studies present a progression of topics building upon one another. In Obedience, the lessons standĀ  independently, yet share a common theme. Each lesson invites us to be docile to God’s plan for our lives.

Obedience is challenging and practical. Each lesson reveals new areas of behaviour, beliefsĀ  or attitudes to surrender to God. These areas include fears, speech habits, obedience to Church teachings and chastity. As challenging as this sounds, many participants say Obedience is one of their favourite studies.
