we need to be organized when conducting the small Christian communities, here are the steps that we can follow to ensure that we follow the procedure well

Steps Of Facilitating A Small Christian Community-SCC

a. Looking at life
It begins with a social, Economic, Cultural problem which everyone in the group is able to comprehend. This followed by emphasizing on a subject drawn by many people for example, increase in food prices. Such an issue could be related to high increase in malnutrition among the young children. At this juncture, one member starts by using a code .
b. Ask the question . Why?
Here you do a kind of superficial analysis. Whereby the group members are asked on what they are seeing. The members share their feelings about the situation and come up with probable reason that may be attributed to the problem.
c. Listening to the word of God
At this juncture, the Bible becomes an asset to facilitate the process. Tis implies that a proper text will be sought so as to be in line with the topic at hand. Such chosen text should be able to shade some light on what has been presented by the group. A selected text may be read for a second time to allow the members be in touch with it, this is followed by listening in silence, sharing in relation to the text in the light of heir life process.
d. Searching for the root cause
There is brainstorming on what is happening by focusing on the situation before hand, and asking the members to look at their present lives through the past . During this time, there is a closer look on the relevant structures such as the social, Economic, Political and the cultural aspects that are in line with the peoples predicaments.
e Planning with firmness
This is the crucial stage whereby the SCCs plans to engage in a situation in the light of the prevailing situation. At this moment, the members try to come up with concrete plan of action that will aim at liberating them from their vulnerability.
The above mentioned method used places much emphasis on the relevance of Gods word to life situations. This implies that the word of God need to challenge different life situations within the society level. It is therefore important to note that the use of SCCs to transform the society is a complex issue that calls for linkages with other ways of Gospel sharing in order to make the Word more palatable to the people.
