The Companions in Christ Leader's Guide may be the most user-friendly and comprehensive guide available. It provides leaders with a complete outline for each of the 28 weekly meetings, full content for each meeting including simple worship experiences for opening and closing times, music suggestions, lists of items needed each week, and notice of any unique needs in future weeks.
All weekly group gatherings follow the same general outline:
-- Opening time of worship and centering
-- Sharing insights from the weekly readings and exercises
-- Deeper explorations through a group experience
-- Closing worship
Leading a spiritual formation group requires distinctive leadership skills. The Leader's Guide helps leaders identify and develop such qualities as patience, trust, listening, and acceptance.
