I have this idea for small groups in churches that emerge up out of the ground. Pastors nurture them, fertilizing the ground, watering, weeding, providing stakes when necessary, but they don't try to force them into a template. They allow them to find their way. There are no objectives or outcomes, just a simple expectation that they continue journeying together. The question that is asked is not "where are we going?" but rather, "who's coming with me?"
Sound like fun?
