Sometimes a member of a small group will drop a shocking, major bombshell on the group. There is no way to prepare in advance for a shock you don't know is coming, but if you are flexible, your group can rise to the occasion to be used by God. Here's how.

Key Points:

  • Be flexible.
  • Stop and pray.
  • Be careful about what you say.
  • After the meeting, follow up.
  • Coach the group.

Quote This:

Galatians 6:2 Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
