Last week, our small group discussion leader was sick so we were combined with another group and had a different leader. Admittedly, I wasn’t thrilled about the idea but I went along…
And boy was I surprised!
It was a very lively discussion and it was very cool to get other people’s perspectives on the lesson. The other group’s demographics was completely different than ours and it was neat to see.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the discussion and was surprised at where our conversations led. The number of ladies was doubled so there was about 2 dozen of us.
From this experience, I thought BSF could do more of this sort of thing: joining other groups for a week and mixing it up a bit. I understand how the point is to keep it all confidential and some people only share once they become comfortable. But we had no ASK’s or anything personal discussed–just the lesson.
I was wondering what you all thought. Should BSF do more of this mixing of the groups and sitting in on others’ discussions every now and then? Or do you like the format of same group every week with no wriggle room?
