In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program
Family structure is not always visible. Unless you know the families of all the children in the Creating Home group, do not assume anything about what each child's family structure looks like. During the session, you will want to use images and examples that are inclusive and language that is accepting.
Think about the various configurations of families that might be represented in the group: single parents, foster families, stepfamilies, families with gay or lesbian parents, families with two heterosexual parents, families with divorced parents, group homes, or children being raised by grandparents or other adults. Imagine the collective wisdom that would result from each family being able to share their experiences in the world. How do you visualize it? Is it like a colorful mural stretching across the sky? What piece would your family's story add?
