In "Harvest the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program
Use this non-drawing-oriented activity instead of Activity 4, Concepts of the Divine/Ultimate.
Invite participants to consider how they have formed images of God, both positive and negative, over time. Say:
Perhaps you recall teachings from childhood or chance conversations with others. Perhaps your experiences include a rejection — or an embrace — of the idea of God. Perhaps you recall spiritual and theological questions you had as a youth or a young adult. Perhaps you remember when your notion of the existence and nature of God somehow did not make sense anymore. Perhaps you have experienced moments of spiritual crisis or a crisis of meaning.
Allow several minutes for participants to reflect quietly. Then, invite participants to form groups of four and share the ways their notions of God/Divine/Ultimate have developed over time.
