Meeting Opener

This is particularly useful for a group that doesn’t meet together very often.

  1. Give everyone a piece of flip chart paper and markers.
  2. Have each person create a flip chart illustrating Old, New, Up, Down.
  3. They should draw pictures showing
    • What’s new since we were last together (new)
    • What’s the same (old)
    • What’s going on that’s good (up)
    • And a negative (down).
  4. Then have everyone share. You can post the charts on the wall during your session.
