Thriving in Community: Group Identity
Group assigns portion of reading to one person in the group to re-tell at next meeting.
When groups meets next, the person assigned, retells the portion as best they can by memory.
Group then re-tells story together again, without help from original teller (help and prompt each other).
The bible passage is then read out loud, pausing to note where points were missed or incorrect.
Facilitator has group answer questions.
As you study the daily readings, pause and ask these questions to better understand the good news.
