Equipping Your Reimagine Journey
On 26Sep20 we held a discipleship event called Off the Bench, Into the Game (OBIG). There were 26 in attendance. I, as ministry leader, did not lead or teach a lesson; in fact, I went for pizza.
I've been training several guys in group facilitation. When we planned OBIG, at the outset I appointed a main facilitator and a helper for the two lessons we were presenting which were "Time Alone with God" and "Assurance of Forgiveness." They did all the research, lesson planning, and…Continue
Churches are closed! Groups limited to no more than 10! What are we to do?
This morning I gathered with a group of six (including myself). We talked about this very thing. When Church doors close, as they have during this emergency, what are the parishioners to do?

Recently I asked a man and his wife, "What is your Jesus story?"
