How do you get a group of people to start talking? How do you get them to start being real? Story Cards are an exciting way to encourage people to share about their lives and spiritual journeys. You’ll be surprised by how Story Cards draw your group into deeper reflection and more meaningful conversations.

If you’ve never used Story Cards, you may be skeptical. But over the years, we’ve used them in lots of small groups, and in Starting Point groups. And they’ve worked 100 percent of the time.

Story Cards never fail to get people talking in surprisingly open ways. So, if you have a deck lying around and you haven’t used it yet, make it an icebreaker at your next group meeting.

We’ve included some ideas to help get you started below.

If you don’t have any, consider buying a pack.
