Like many other friends, I have tried to study the 29th of December letter. In this process, it has been helpful to structure the content of the letter. However, I noticed that all letters explain extensively “the process of sustainable growth” where clusters are moving along a continuum of stages that are marked by milestones.

If you wish to get a better overview of this “process of sustainable growth”, perhaps the below study guides/aids will be of assistance. This post has one new study guide/aid and also references previously posted material on this topic.

  • A  listing the steps of the “process of sustainable growth” with references to key letters for further explanation and elaboration of each step from different perspectives. The elaborative references are from the 29th of December 2015 letter, the 28th of December 2010 letter, the Ridvan Message of 2010 and Insights from the frontiers of learning.   – Steps of Process of Sustainable Growth

The 29th of December 2015 letter from The Universal House of Justice has been studied (and will be studied more) and it might be time for some questions. If you wish to “test” your knowledge of the letter’s contents or perhaps end a deepening session with some questions, you might find this 29DEC2015 Letter Questions helpful.

The participants can be divided in two or more groups, and then each group chooses a question. If they answer the question correctly, they get the points. Once a question has been chosen, it will change colour but remember, after each question, just click next and the answer comes. Then just use the triangle in the lower left corner of the slide to get back to the main page with all the categories. There are 20 questions in total.

The questions are in PowerPoint format so you will need powerpoint or power point viewer to see the slides. You can download the powerpoint viewer for free (just google it).

The questions are, as you can see from the screen print below, categorised in words (meaning of difficult words), quotes (missing words), numbers (asking for numbers stated in the letter) and who (which institution is entrusted with certain tasks).

Perhaps a topical outline of the 29 December letter from the Universal House of Justice might help in its study. If so, here is one (Topical Outline of 29DEC2015 Letter from UHJ)

It is interesting to note that the headings of the letter seem to define or succinctly characterise the essence of the milestones.

1st Milestone: The emergence of a programme of growth

2nd Milestone: Strengthening the pattern of action (Intensive Programme of Growth)

3rd Milestone: Embracing large numbers and managing complexity

The features of the new Five Year Plan has been defined by the Universal House of Justice in their letter dated 29th of December 2015 addressed to the Conference of the Continental Board of Counsellors. No doubt, this letter will be intensively studied in the coming months.

Sometimes it might be easier to study such letters if one has an outline that allows one to get a better overview. You can download an outline/study guide for the letter here. Study Guide and Outline of UHJ 29 Dec 2015 Letter
