The studies are intended to be taken in small groups of between four and twelve people.
At the beginning take time to find out how people got on with the actions they said they would do in the previous study.
Allow plenty of time to read the passage.
Feel free to re-read it as many times as necessary until the group is able to retell it all.
Give everyone a chance to answer each question.
If you don't see how someone's answer relates to the passage feel free to ask respectfully "Where do you see that in the passage?"
Encourage everyone to identify an action they will take as result of the passage.
It is best to phrase actions as "I will" statements (eg "I will thank God for my family").
Encourage everyone to identify someone they will tell the story to.
