[TRANSITION TO PART 2 OF MEETING]
“This concludes Part One of the Meeting."
"During Part 2, may we let these basic guidelines help us have a rich experience together.”
✅ Let’s be patient and Let God be the authority thru His Word.
✅ Not a place to preach, dominate, opinionate, bloviate or tell others how to live so let’s avoid “must”, “ought” and “should”
✅ When sharing, share ”Your Personal” experience, insight, or struggle in the 1ST PERSON.
✅ ‘Listening is Love’ so let’s be courteous allowing others to share their even vulnerable moments without interruption, commentary or correction as God is touching someone with his word.
(NOTE: Skip this next phrase if only one Facilitator is handling both Part 1 and 2 of the meeting)
