I wish there were more resources out there on running girls discipleship groups. A blog? I want to look at prayer this time and I’m not sure where even to start activity/discussion wise. Except to get them praying.
Our kick off is a lunch at a cafe in March. I’m going to get 3-6 girls (estimate) – the same group as last year (which I’m pretty happy about) minus one who is going into the Yr.7’s to be with a friend. This year it’s Year 8’s for me. It’ll be interesting to see what it brings maturity-wise, because Year Sevens seem to grow up an awful lot from the start of the year to the end. I’m proud of them!
I had way too much fun making invites* this morning… perhaps I should pour my effort into actually working out what we’re doing, but hey, if I got something like that back in Yr.8 I would be really excited. Probably beside myself (inside). I’d stick it on my wall.
Here’s a confession. I have a card my youth leader gave me (several years ago now) and I framed it because it meant so much and it’s lived on my wall ever since (except now because we still don’t know if we can put hooks up).
It scares me now that I might have something remotely close to that kind of influence.
*This book by the way, is sweet. I’m studying package design this semester so I thought I’d load up (Mostly it was an excuse to have something to make boxes etc for fun). It supplies the templates in eps. form and you do what you want with them. Ahh the world has opened up!
This sprang to mind
I’l bring my book – “running better bible studies” to church on sunday – or maybe even drop it in sometime this week as I go home ( I often get a lift from work to ringwood east station). The title doesn’t sound very promising, but it’s just basically good ways to develop group life – and prayer is one chapter
I am reading this at the minute about prayer. It is pretty old, but teaches some good things about prayer. It is called “With Christ in the School of Prayer” by Andrew Murray. I can lend you it if you want.
that was meant to be Lusky (oops)
[…] all my whinging, the internet is not totally destitute of quality help for stuck youth […]
