Recently I put together a simple printout that you can use as a bookmark in Life Transformation Groups (LTGs). On this bookmark, I have put some questions and symbols that we have used to train others in discovery Bible study as well as some questions intended to foster authentic disciple-making friendships as well as a few prayer ideas for praying for friends found in Neil Cole’s LTG resources. This tool will be best understood if you take a second to learn more about Life Transformation Groups and how they can be a helpful way of thinking about making disciples. Check out this post on our site and the links referenced there to learn about LTG’s how they can be a simple, reproducible way of thinking about multiplying disciples and simple churches.
UPDATE… Ideally, any disciple-making friendship would likely grow out of the need to utilize this bookmark when meeting together. In fact, I sometimes consider it a challenge to love someone in such a way that these questions are being asked without needing to pull this bookmark out. My prayer is that this would be a tool to help you learn how to have authentic relationships…if the relationship requires going through this bookmark in a rigid fashion, it may not be serving its purpose.
