Each session of the series is designed to take one hour but can easily be adapted for your group’s needs. We recommend allowing time at the beginning to chat and get to know one another, especially if your group is new.
Each session will include questions to allow groups to talk about what impacted them most – feel free to spend time on the questions that are most helpful for your group, and don’t worry about getting through all the questions! However, if your group prefers to have multiple questions to work through, these are provided too.
We also recommend allowing time at the end for reflection and to pray for one another, especially as each session requires a little vulnerability.
In the second session, we’ll be exploring how our desire to feel truly seen can’t be met by achieving relevance, but only in deep friendship.
She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”
Begin the session by opening in prayer
“First, I draw near to Jesus in friendship.
Being truly seen by Jesus helps me see others.
Seeing others leads to friendship with them.”
Finish your time together by closing in prayer or splitting into small groups to pray for one another’s specific needs.
Choose one person to encourage this week. Spend some time praying for them and asking God how he sees them – then send them a text or have a conversation sharing your encouragement.
