In the first 12 or so sessions, it was basically a Q & A format, where I’d present a series of questions and we’d get into a dialogue or conversation with the group.
But once we got to chapter 13, I started implementing (from the wise suggestion of another person) mandatory written summaries of each members’ thoughts. It’s a particularly good habit to get into when you write down your thoughts; you get a chance to reflect, refine, and revise upon what’s going on in your mind.
I believe that writing is a form of (spiritual) discipline that groups like this, and even church small groups and the like, will greatly benefit from.
