In "Faith like a River," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell the group this activity is an opportunity to remember and memorialize women and men of our faith heritage who died for their beliefs and values. Invite participants to use their imaginations as well as resources from other activities in this workshop to create an altar that honors the martyrs in our history. Indicate the images and craft materials you have provided. Suggest they may wish to use a few words from the sentence given to Michael Servetus (Leader Resource 2) or from the reading you have bookmarked in Singing the Living Tradition. Some may wish to contribute the copies of Handout 2, Capek Prayer on which they wrote or drew in Activity 3. Encourage participants to creatively fill in what history has not given us of martyrs' lives.
Tell the group any plans you have made for displaying the altar, for related worship, or other activities. Ask the group to determine which aspects of this project will be done individually or collectively as they create a memorial altar to share with the congregation.
Have plenty of "ready made" materials, such as pictures, available for those who are less confident of their artistic skills.
