Meetings will be closed at 7:35 pm Central Time
Please only come to the Yeshua Connections meetings if you have your 7 subjects to share. (These will be explained below) You may share from a couple of sentences to 2 minutes about each thing you choose to share. Please time your points prior to the meeting and time yourself during your 2 minutes at the meeting. After 2 minutes you will be muted and the next person unmuted. After we have our 7 rounds we will have more rounds. Each person will have up to 7 minutes to discuss or make on-topic comments or ask on-topic questions.
If you are not facilitators (Maris and Iris) and disagree with another participant contact them after the meeting for a private discussion. 

Please be considerate of the Yeshua Connection format.  Ask G-d to enable you to share 7 things that will encourage, convict, inform, or put a smile on other participants' faces. The easiest way to study for the meeting is to read over the 25 subjects a few times before you read the portion of scripture we will be discussing. For each meeting, your study time may be between 1 and 2 hours. 

Please quote from Jewish bibles. Complete Jewish Bible, Tree of Life Bible, or any other Messianic or Traditional Jewish bible. Some can be found in a free online version or you can do a search on Google for the verse with the name of the bible or version (TLV, CJB). Since ours is a Jewish outreach, do not study Christian bibles or commentaries instead of Messianic Jewish or Traditional Jewish ones. 

You only need to share 7 out of the 25 subjects. Each person will share 1 subject each round. Please choose 7 of these 25 subjects for sharing. Please make sure what you prepare to speak about will not go over your 2 minutes. You will be muted after 2 minutes. All comments need to have a foundation in the portion of scripture we have studied. At the beginning of giving your point, please share which of the points you will be sharing about. Please give chapters and verses of all scriptures that you mention.
