LEADER RESOURCE 1: Sentence Starters

Print out the incomplete sentences, enlarged to at least 16-point type. Cut the pages into strips, with one incomplete sentence on each strip. Select sentences most appropriate to your congregation, and/or add some of your own. Fold strips of paper and put them in a small basket or bowl. Provide a few more than the number of participants you anticipate. If necessary, duplicate some phrases to have enough for all participants and facilitators.
