I have always been in a small group. Most of the time I have been in more than one small group. However, it has been a while since I have led a small group. Last night I got together with my new apprentice leader and we began to lay out the plans for our new group and how we are going to meet over the summer. It is exciting for me to think about how God is going to use these relationships that will develop and these friendships that will mature over the next several months. Gods simple idea behind the church is that it would be a group of relationships that change each other and change the world. Small groups are really the connection that makes community happen.
