Recently I gave a short talk to a Small Group Network huddle in Kansas City on the subject of no problem-free small group systems, models or strategies. This is a very important topic because I believe the pursuit of problem-free solutions delays more ministry than anything else.
You know this right? At least at the basic level you probably already have the understanding that there are no problem-free small group systems, models or strategies. I’ve talked about this many times over the last several years. But sometimes, even when we know this in a general way, when it comes to choosing a particular model, we still find ourselves believing that there may be a problem-free solution.
