We've got questions! (And you've got the answers.)

Okay everyone, we want your comments!

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the two most recent stories, and I’m wondering what y’all are thinking as well. So I’m throwing out a couple of questions, that you can reply via the “comments” link.

In terms of South Bay: “In your experience, what is the most important change that occurred in your cluster right before it advanced to the A stage?”

In terms of Southern Nevada, the last part was a vivid reminder to “not judge a book by its cover”. So here’s a pair of questions: “What has been your most surprising teaching experience?” AND “Of all the comments made by seekers with whom you have been sharing the Faith, which has had the biggest effect on how you now teach the Faith?”

Looking forward to everyone’s thoughts!

One participant in our cluster's teaching efforts had only completed one or two books in the Ruhi sequence, but he was welcome to participate. He chose to accompany the team as a silent prayer partner. Soon, he agreed to complete an intensive Ruhi 3 course, and now he is teaching children's classes in the neighborhood. This children's class has since become a way to get more and more of the friends involved.

Another element of our progress has been increasing unity of vision through studying guidance together. We visit each other in our homes to study guidance from the Universal House of Justice and to share what we have learned about direct teaching. This has uncovered many surprises, and has built a lot of unity!
