5.   Other important reflections

 People often complain their bible sharings become discussions.

We have developed a bible sharing method with the following steps:

1. Reading the text in creative ways

2. Questions for study where everybody is invited to give answers, and this is a kind of icebreaker also

3. Word and action –

4. Questions for reflection and sharing

5. Spontaneous prayers.

Since all possible questions about the text have been answered, and questions are given for reflection, the sharing can be deep and personal. Elements of bibliodrama are used. The participants find this method very enriching and satisfying.
