SOAP = Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer. more
We had a great night sharing our insights and our lives around the passage and then praying or each other.
I could have pulled out my Greek New Testament and given a lecture on the passage. OK my Greek is a bit rusty, but they don’t know that.
But last night all we needed was a simple method of encountering God in the scriptures together. SOAP did it for us.
I call SOAP an adaptive method. It’s simple, flexible and reproducible. According to Bob Logan, adaptive methods empower ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
When a movement needs to get something done, somehow it invents, discovers, reinvents or steals an adaptive method.
How about you?
