Faith In Action: Using Your Hands to Help Others, Workshop 5: Move In the Hand: Living Our Spirituality in Our Day-To-Day Lives

In "Spirit of Life," a Tapestry of Faith program

Description of Activity

To help the spirit "move in your hand," try finding a way you can work with your hands that would also involve your creativity and your spirit: Here are some examples:

  • Working in or starting a community garden
  • Sewing or knitting items for those who are ill or bereaved
  • Cooking a meal for someone who needs it
  • Creating a piece of art to share with others
  • Building something as small like a shelf for your church's library or as big as a house for Habitat for Humanity
  • Taking care of children for a church event for young parents.

As you engage in the activity, call to mind the persons who will use it or for whom it is intended. Hold them in thought or in prayer.
