Leader Resource 1: Listening Circle Facilitator Guide

What part of belonging to this faith community touches your spirit most deeply?

Present the question for listening circle participants to address.

Explain that as the talking object is passed around the circle, participants may respond, one at a time, from their hearts, while others listen deeply.

Explain that this exercise is only a taste of the listening circle process, so you will allow each speaker two (or three) minutes. You may wish to model a two-minute response.

Repeat the question: "What part of belonging to this faith community touches your spirit most deeply?" Pass the talking object to a person sitting next to you to begin the listening circle. When the talking object returns to you, tell the group the listening circle is now done.
