Regularly remind your group of the ABCDs of Discussion.
A = Audible (Be loud enough for all to hear.)
B = Brief (Share statements not stories.)
C = Christ and Content-centered (Stay focused.)
D = Discuss without Division (Don’t talk about politics, denominations, or controversial issues.)
This will help keep the Bible study session on track and off tangents or unwanted topics. If the conversation veers, you can say, “Let’s get back to (what the Bible says, the Bible study, our lesson) and if you would like to talk after the study, please see me.” Then the focus will be on God and His Word - using the Bible as your guide.
