Prayer and Share Fellowship Groups
STEP 5. "WHEN WAS IT DIFFICULT TO SHOW CHRIST'S LOVE"
A sense of false humility sometimes limits our abilities to recount our successes in their fullness. Egos quite often prohibit our recounting our failures. Our tendency to think that only the good and grand actions are worthy of reporting rob our brothers/sisters of what might prove to be their close moment with Christ for the day or even the week.
STEP 6. "THANKSGIVING AND SHARED STRUGGLES"
Benchmarks of Christian spirituality during the Kairos Weekend are the thanksgiving times. These times were incorporated into the 3 1/2 days because, when we removed the Eucharist from the Weekend, we no longer had any designated place for us to offer thanksgivings to the Lord. The word Eucharist itself means "thanksgiving."
On the Weekend, it it firstcomers' time when the Participants are full of gratitude but not yet secure enough to talk to each other about the experiences they are having. By that time, the Team has created "a safe place" for the Participants. They now feel secure enough to share their joy with God.
STEP 7. ' CLOSE WITH THE LORD'S PRAYER"
Listen, Listen, Love, Love!
