Smallness as the means.

I've been thinking about how smallness in our youth group can move from being the ends to the means. Our end goal is not to have dozens of small groups situated around the community reporting numbers every week and checking off curriculum. Our end goal is to have the smallness open us to to community which enlarges our hearts and our reach.

How do we get to small community without killing it with planning and organizing.

This happens organically as I watch my husband build a young adult community downtown. It's incredible to see how a relatively large group can be so small.

I want this for our middle school ministry.
