Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:4-7

Lists too Good not to Share # 3

Are you getting ready to start a new Bible study group for the year? Here is a fantastic list of questions I found here on Jean's blog In All Honesty that could be used to help your group get to know each other. You write each question on a separate piece of paper, fold the pieces of paper up and put them in a bowl. Members of your group take turns to choose a question and answer it. Or you could choose five questions and get everyone to answer each of them and do this over several weeks. It's great! I used these questions last year in a group I ran and it really helped ease some "new group nerves."

This list is copied with full permission. Here it is...
