Description of Activity
Share this quote from religious historian William Cantwell Smith:
Faith at its best has taken the form of a quiet confidence and joy which enable one to feel at home in the universe.
Invite participants to reflect for a moment, then put aside words and create a representation of what enables them to feel at home in the universe. Tell them they will have 15 minutes to use the art materials to create a representation of their faith. When time is up, invite participants to share their creations and their meaning with the group.
