Anyone interested in sharing their stories of small groups from a female perspective?
I am finishing up a new training packet for SmallGroups.com called "Effective Small Groups for Women." And I figured that I would write up a quick blog post about some of my reactions to the material in that download -- specifically, me talking about the awkwardness and uncertainty that I sometimes feel when I lead a small group that includes women.
But then I thought -- who wants to hear about that?
So, I would like to open up the floor to the women readers of this blog for a moment. Thinking specifically as a woman, how would you rate your experiences with small groups? Have you been pleased, confused, excited, or demoralized? What things have gone right, and where is there still room for progress?
Here's another angle: have you ever been in a group that was led by a man -- and how did it go? Or, have you ever led a small group that included men, and were there any issues that needed to be addressed there?
I guess I would just like to hear some of your stories, since I will never be able to experience a small group from a woman's point of view. So, for those of you that are willing to share, thanks in advance!
