Publishers Description Cultivate Intimacy and Honesty in Your Youth Ministry s Small Groups Here are 31 small-group meetings about--well, small groups. After all, the kind of honest sharing, perceptive silence, compassionate boldness, and mutual growth that are the marks of an effective and attractive small group don t always come naturally. With the complete sessions in Talking the Walk--all of them customized precisely for small groups-----you can lead your small group of teenagers from just getting comfortable with kids they don t usually hang with, to talking honestly, listening carefully, and understanding themselves and each other. The first five meetings are a gradual, gentle introduction to the idea of communication, confidences, and listening skills--the mechanics and heart of small-group dynamics--then on to more than two dozen topical meetings about issues that matter most to adolescents: how to face life s tensions; self esteem; change; sexuality; giving and receiving love; clarifying future goals; friends; family; forgiveness; diversity; conflict; moods; priorities--and more, all of them based in Bible passages . . . appropriate for mixed groups of churched and unchurched kids . . . and each session with more than enough creative and quirky ideas, so you can select those that best fit your style and your small group s temperament. Perfect for outreach and evangelism groups, discipleship groups, Sunday school, midweek cell groups--any time you want small groups of your students to grow together in community, in intimacy, in faith. (Previously published as Honest to God) 31 sessions."

Great Book, Solid Content, Helpful Notes Nov 10, 2000
Solid book with good, clearly written "lesson plans" for using with your small groups. Positive suggestions for getting started and continuing on. One of my favorite parts of this book are the margin notes for new or beginning youth ministers or cell group leaders. The authors are very eager to teach their readers to adapt, adapt, adapt.
