Talk positively about the church. The small group is not the time to plot against the worship leader or to complain about the pastor. It is also not a time to pass judgment on those who think differently than you do on an issue, be it political, religious, or social. Keep the same principles of worship, prayer, and teaching that are found in the congregation as designated by your congregational leaders. Your time together should be a time to rejoice over the church, to pray for the church, and to increase your love for the Lord’s church.
