I have a passion for small groups. That is – a handful of people getting together to build community and relationships, usually in the context of learning or doing something else as well. From a christian-based perspective (where I am coming from), that is usually a group of people (8-14 or so) meeting regularly to learn the bible and how they can apply its principles to their lives, and to support one another in that endeavor.
Small groups could also be a monthly book club, a weight watchers group, a volunteer team to help others.
People get together in small groups often to accomplish something – but usually they are looking for something more – some kind of community. When you use principles for creating a good group, they will work in any setting.
And when you have a good group, it rocks!
Viva la Group!
