II. The following materials are intended for the group leader, in order to prepare the meeting.

The leader will note the fragments / moments that the group members consider the saddest in the text proposed for the current session.
The leader will record the divisions chosen by the members of the group and will order them in ascending order, mentioning also the titles they received from the participants.
The next step is the one in which the group leader creates, based on the presented divisions, a new text, excluding the divisions that were not chosen. The leader will then present to the group the result, or how the text was rearranged.
In conclusion, the leader will invite the group members to look at the picture (from point 3) and try to answer the two questions. Explain to members that the answer should be short.

It is very important that the leader does not lead the discussion in any direction.

In conclusion, the leader will average the saddest moments in the text proposed for the current session and invite the group members to meditate on their choice and pray for those who have been involved in the saddest moments of their lives.

  1. It is more sad to not have friends you can trust.
    The betrayal is sad.
    Last supper is not as it is celebration of friendship to the end.
    I’d be anyone s guest if I got free food. 😁

    1. You’re right, Michelle. But if we think always about betrayal, we will never be able to love. It is a risk worth to be taken.
