Activities JOURNALING Ask adults to journal about a particular topic that relates to a Bible study, a fear, something they are thankful for, or the like. It could be in paragraphs, bullet points, or even simply "I feel" statements. Journaling is an important tool that allows adults to organize and share their thoughts. It can also be a useful device for releasing emotional or mental tension. Ask a few adults to share what they've written with the group. THINK, PAIR, AND SHARE During a small-group meeting or in a Sunday-morning Bible class, ask adults a question related to the subject of the study. Challenge your group members to think about the question from a variety of perspectives, tak- ing into consideration what they already know or have learned from experience. Next, have each adult pair up with a partner. Allow ten to twenty minutes for the pairs to talk about their answers. Finally, bring everyone back together to share answers among a larger group. ROUND ROBIN DISCUSSION Decide upon a topic that you want adults to discuss. Set up three to five tables with different questions on each. Have adults divide into small groups and start each group at a different table. Give groups ten or fifteen minutes to discuss the questions at their table. Move on to the next table and so on until each group has visited each table and discussed all the questions. Once completed, take turns having each group present their reflections.
