We actually have a pretty good group already…. but this is interesting nevertheless:
I am increasingly convinced that efforts to find renewal within the Wesleyan tradition are dependent on the denomination’s ability to return to the place where transformation happened in the beginnings of the Wesleyan movement, the class meeting. However, the class meeting has not only been largely abandoned, but the language for giving voice to the state of one’s soul has also largely been lost in many Wesleyan communities. In my experience with United Methodism, for example, many people who are asked the question that was at the heart of the early Methodist class meeting, “How is it with your soul?” are simply unable to give an answer.
I think that small group accountability is generally the best method for any group.
