Video Resources for Small Group & Discussion Leaders
In addition, here are 6 links to Youtube videos for each small group / discussion sessions. The are approximately 23 minutes in length. These videos, too, will be of value in your discussion. If you are leading a discussion, you will do well to watch the video in advance of your meeting.
Leading the discussion...
Suggested outline for your gatherings:
* Time for social interaction
* A welcome and introduction of any new people
* A video with additional teaching on the themes covered
* Discussion of the material read in the previous week
* Time for questions

Hints for leading the discussion...
Each daily reading from the Purpose Driven Life includes a 'point to ponder' and a 'question to consider'. These points and questions will prove to be a great starting point for a discussion.
