Just because you prepared a Sunday lesson numerous times, never assume you have arrived. Seasoning really makes good dressing great dressing. Ask yourself, "What;s happening in the lives of my class members that may cause me to add something different to this week's lesson?" In order to answer this question I have to know where each class member is spiritually, emotionally and experientially. Testimonies from class members add the freshness that a great lesson deserves. Testimonies require early preparation. If you know of an appropriate testimony from a class member, ask them ahead of time to share part of their story. If we make each lesson distinctive, class members won't have problem remembering the point of the discussion. When seasoning, use fresh ingredients.
