A group Reunion is a group of four to six people get together to pray and to share their lives of Piety, Study and Action over the past week. The members of the group share the joys and struggles of living the Fourth Day.
By sharing your week with other Christian friends it helps you to remember your faith commitment, that Christ is Counting on You. You are reminded that Jesus touched your busy week or that you were distant from Him and maybe need to take more time to pray.
By sharing deeply your faith life, you help everyone in the group keep them on track. You also are supported and encouraged by the sharing of the other members. You become a living Christian Community and you develop a friendship and commitment to each other and the group that is a strong aid in living out your Fourth Day
Group Reunion is one more tool to help a person to keep strong in their faith.
