In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program
This session focuses on Mohammed's feeling for his faith home. The story describes how his feelings, and his beliefs, changed over time. Consider yourself in light of this issue. Are you still practicing the faith you were introduced to as a child? Does it still fit you? This might be a difficult question for some people. If you have left a previous faith home, the leaving might have been painful and difficult. Acknowledge the feelings you have.
Now acknowledge that you no longer have to dwell in this hurtful place. Think about the congregation in which you are teaching children about their faith home. This faith home can be yours, too. Perhaps it already is; perhaps you feel you are still new to it and are still unsure.
Think about the children you will be with today. Your work with them will shape how they understand their faith home. If they experience a place of acceptance and love where myriad theologies can coexist, perhaps they will never need to look for another faith home. May it be so.
