Each Pebbles and Stones lesson has key components and characteristics. They are designed to create an environment where each participant can hear what God is saying to them, grow in relationship with Him and build community with others through prayer. All components focus on the scripture passage or Biblical narrative being used for each lesson. We see loving God and loving our neighbor not as a abstract but rather a profoundly concrete way to demonstrate His love. Participants are encouraged to see how God will meet their needs and lead them to help meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those within their community and beyond. The reality of loving God, ourselves, and others is experienced during each meeting.
