Multiplied

1 June, 2005 10:14 PM

Tonight was the first night that LivingRoom met in its new multiplied form (three smaller groups meeting in separate homes). It feels a little strange not seeing the whole group but also quite exciting to recapture some of the intimate aspects of a group of a smaller group. It's sort of like starting again.

It'll be interesting to see how the next few weeks unfold and how things are when we come back together as a large group in five weeks.

I wonder how the other groups went...

So how does the leadership work? Do you have any say in the direction of the other groups?

Basically each group is self selecting two leaders each who will come together with me each month for a meal, discussion, prayer and some planning of our bigger gatherings.

I did consider the 'appointing' leaders thing but felt that the groups were going to self select people who were the 'right stuff' better than i probably would.

Darren,

Over the past 20 years I have been apart of three congregations where each has a regular attendance of about 1,000, 1,500 and 5,000 respectively. During the past two years, I found my attitude changing of how I view my small groups in relation to the Body of Christ. Specifically, I find them to be much more representative of �church� than the large service congregations I attend. I�m not saying there is no place for a large church setting, there most definitely is; but it is equally true that the small setting provides an outlet to address �normal family issues� in the form of concerns, struggles, sharing of gifts and talents, etc. Once I began to take these settings more seriously and realize they are just as viable in Him as the larger, my relationship with the Lord has gone from one that was stagnant to one that is now growing.

Anyway, good to see the new groups underway and I look forward to how our Lord uses them and grows them up.
