Talking with a purpose

​As is appropriate in an oral society, guided discussion easily took up more workshop time than any other form of communication, learning, or identity building.

Each of the twenty select Old Testament texts was discussed at length – first to make sure everyone could retell the text accurately, second to allow everyone to express what they see in the text, and third to allow everyone to express what they want to „take away“ from the text.

In the second week, afternoon discussions were devoted to analyzing their communities by generations – in terms of their fears, dreams, what they can contribute to the community, how they function in their multilingual context, and their comfort with books and technology.

The goal: church leaders who understand how best to reach their communities in holistic ministry, centred around a common understanding of God’s Word.
