Rows = Teaching – Circles = Growing

Over the past few months I have had the opportunity to watch this principal in action. Having done the one day event of Battlefield of the Mind back in July, with everyone sitting in rows in my front room as we watched the Joyce Meyer DVD, gleaning truth on how important it is to get our thoughts in alignment with God’s thoughts, then to just a few weeks ago, having the absolute pleasure of sitting in rows with sisters in Christ at my church as we watched the Beth Moore Simulcast. Both events were very powerful and needed. Learning the truth of God’s Word is an absolute must if we are to then take it to the next level. Circles. A few days after the simulcast, I was invited to gather together in circles with sisters for a dessert coffee night. It was a night of great conversation and connection. And just this past Saturday, had the utmost honor to host another Battlefield of the Mind One day event where we had the space to create circles and discussion after each session of the DVD. It was unbelievable amazing the difference this opportunity afforded us.  Our first event, while it was really, REALLY good and at the time, I didn’t think it could get any better, God allowed this go around to be truly life changing. Having the ability to hold table discussions, to watch these women come alive as they talked out what they just heard. As they shared things with each other, shared their fears, spoke out dreams and ways to implement what they just listened to. As they encouraged one another and spoke The Word of God to each other in confidence, I was blown away by the difference circles made.  Yes, rows are an absolute must, but to grow in our faith. To become all that God has created us to be. Circles are an absolute must too. We need both to walk out our faith. I thank God for the opportunity He has given me to encourage others in a circle setting. I praise Him for the possibility of Rows in my future.
