After the video, move into some discussion time, exploring with your group their own feelings about \'93revival\'94 experiences, the ideas presented in the video, and ideas for how to turn a one-time revival into an ongoing renewal of your relationship with Jesus. When discussion ends, hand out the \'93My Commitment\'94 sheet to each person in the group. Allow 5-10 minutes for people to quietly fill it out, then encourage them to take it home, place it in their Bibles or another meaningful place to continue referring to in the weeks and months ahead.\par }{\plain \b \par }{\plain \b Preparation Time: }{\plain Obtain a copy of the video and preview it.
