When we think about environments for parents, we often picture situations where we (the children’s pastor or staff member) are casting vision or providing training. There is a time and a place for those kinds of environments, of course, but it’s not the only way to engage or serve parents. Sure, you’ve got a lot of wisdom to share with parents, but have you ever considered that parents have a lot of wisdom to share with you and each other? That’s where these Discussion Groups come in.
