  1. When someone is talking, everyone else really listens.

  2. When a someone is sharing, questions need to be limited to:

    Clarification:  “I didn’t understand that.”  Or “Could you repeat that?”

    More information:  “Could you explain why?” Or “How did you feel when that happened?”

  3. When asked to give feedback to the person sharing:

    Always start with what you can affirm and agree with; then share other opinions or questions.

    In all your responses, be thinking of how to build this person up and en- courage them with what God has for them.

  4. Confidentiality for group sharing:

    Commit to respecting the vulnerability and trust given to you during any open and honest sharing.
