Small groups.

In 1905, John Vincent (a leader in the movement we call “Sunday School”) made a prediction about the future of his movement:

“In the future the Sunday school will be less like a school and more like a home.  Its program will focus on conversation and the interaction of people rather than the academic study of the Bible or theology.  The Sunday school will be a place where friends deeply concerned about Christian faith will gather to share life together.”

I’d say the brother nailed it.
