TMB* MEANINGFUL PURSUIT “Game”
As newly called Teacher Development Leaders in the Holladay, Utah First Ward in 1996, Rosie (my wife) and I developed a Sunday evening fireside “game” called TMB* Meaningful Pursuit. (The popular game Trivial Pursuit was all the rage.) The evening was designed to promote fellowship among the teachers in our ward and build our collection of object lessons we soon came to call *Teaching Moment Boosters. Invitations to the “party” challenged teachers to bring at least three 3x5” cards with favorite object lessons from their church experience. The “game” was a free form sharing and edifying discussion as attendees shared their written TMBs and others that came to mind. No points and everybody wins with testimony building and teaching technique sharing, Refreshments, of course! As hosts, we collected the cards and printed them for everyone who attended. The cards also make great missionary letter fillers.
