Creating a Group
Invite one or more persons in your circles, on social media or by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Determine meeting location, whether physical or on a live online platform. (Zoom, Skype, etc.).
Determine how often you want to meet. Some groups choose to meet once a month, others bi-monthly.
Choose material by group consensus: books, articles, videos etc. listed on New Creation. Read it individually for reflection before the group sharing.
The discussion should be focused on the content of the material since the aim of the Omega group is to deepen our understanding and to form new horizons of insight. Allow spiritual insights to emerge from the discussions.
CHOOSE A FACILITATOR
The facilitator helps to administer, guide, and organize the group but is not the “head” of the group. This position can rotate.
REGISTER YOUR GROUP
This is not a requirement but we would love to learn about your group, location, and discussions. We will also be able to let you know if others are looking to join an Omega group in your area.
Start and end with a prayer or by reading a small passage, as you would with Lectio Divina. The facilitator should open the discussion. Be sure to allow for pauses of silence.
