How to Create Groups Where People can Pursue Authentic Community and Spiritual Growth
How can I talk about this with my group?
Authenticity is something we all value but may not be able to clearly describe. The goal is that group would be the place where you can be yourself. In order for growth to occur, we must first recognize where we are. Growth can easily get stalled in isolation. Choose to be real with yourself and the others in your group.
Jesus stated that the most important commandment was to love God and to love others (Matthew 22:36–40). With this as our target, growing spiritually requires ongoing movement. Every step forward is progress. It should also be visible to those around us as our love for God and others is displayed through our lives.
