Small Group Gathers Again

Reading and discussion of Respectfully Yours
Last year we started a small group in our home in Holland. Together we have been reading and studying the first book in the Ten Commandments Series, Sacred Sabbath. We had much fun doing so and we all learned some valuable lessons from Gods Word. All members of our group were motivated to start on the next book, but they had to wait for our return from the USA. Last week we came together for the first time in 2008 and we started our study of the 2nd book, Respectfully Yours. This book is about family life and family relations, a very sensitive and personal subject. For this book we decided to put more emphasis on self study. Each week our homework is to read one chapter and to meditate on the discussion notes, which we hand out seperately. The following week we will take time to answer questions, discuss comments or listen to relevant stories. This way we will go through the book individually at home, write down our thoughts and discuss them together in the group. Our first evening was very promising, everyone attending was excited to learn more about mutual respect between God, parents and children!
Jesus said in Matthew 18:20, where two or three come together in my name, I am there with them. That is an awesome promise!
