Tuesday Teaching Tip 10: “Cracking Conclusions“
Tuesday Teaching Tips: “7 ways to conclude a lesson“
The conclusion is usually written before the introduction because it helps you know where you are going / landing.
1. Land the plane
Frustrating to audience if circle
A cause of rejoicing when done well!
2. Complete the picture
Relieve the tension created by your introductory statement or question
Make it all join up, “If….if….if…then…”
3. Call for a response
4. Use a variety of methods
a. Illustration / story (short)
c. Question: “…when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8 NIV11)
d. Challenge: “Go and do likewise” – Lk 10.37
f. Vision: “What would it be like if you loved to help / if you were known as the one who loved to help / difference to your community….”
Question: What conclusions do you find meaningful?
