-Donald Miller
Group Activity #1:

God's timeline.

what do think it is? Discuss among your
group members and be prepared to share.

Activity #2: Who are you and What do you want?

1. Introduce yourself to the group as you imagine
God might introduce you

2. What are your ambitions? i.e What
do you want?

If necessary, take a couple minutes to write
your answers down on the back of your timeline,
and then share your answers with your group
members. For the sake of time, maybe just share
one or two of your goals with the group.
