In "Spirit of Life," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather the group around the altar or centering table. Affirm the good work that participants have done in this workshop. Hand out the Taking It Home handout you have prepared. Explain the activities, as needed.
Invite everyone to join hands, and offer this blessing:
We give thanks for our minds, hearts, hands, spirits, and this community.
May we bless one another and bless the world with our caring.
What we do matters more than we know.
May you go home at the end of the day feeling blessed
And feeling you have contributed to the healing of the world.
Go in peace. Go in love.
Extinguish the chalice.
Be sure to be inclusive of people with a variety of living situations—living alone, with a significant other, in a family, with housemates, etc.—in the way you explain the Taking It Home activities.
