Preparing to Meet

Groups should consider these hospitality matters in preparing to meet:

  • purchase of books or request eCourse access for the group
  • meeting place—comfortable setting with comfortable seating
  • time—beginning time and ending time, flow of the meeting
  • this guide has information for 90 minutes of directed sharing and activity
  • meal, refreshments, and/or beverages
    • Do you want to include any kind of food, snacks, or drinks?
    • Would you want to hold the meetings in homes and with a meal or potluck?
    • Who provides what and who cleans up?
  • convener or alternating leadership to keep time as well as guide the discussion
