In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program
Then, ask the children to help you carefully fold the labyrinth and put it away.
Invite the children to stand together in a circle and hold hands. Lead the group in taking a deep breath together and, if you like, doing an easy circle dance by walking counterclockwise in a circle as they begin singing the Closing words. Have the group switch direction at each new line of the chorus to "When Our Heart is in a
," Hymn 1008 in Singing the Journey. The circle dance will also work if the group recites, rather than sings, the song:
When our heart is in a holy place, (circle left slowly)
When our heart is in a holy place. (circle right slowly)
We are blessed with love and amazing grace. (circle left slowly)
When our heart is in a holy place. (face inward and look at each other)
Say in your own words:
Today has been our last time together to explore how we create family homes and faith homes. We have been on a journey together and this is the end of the journey. I will miss each of you and I will remember the unique and special gift you have been to this Creating Home group. I wish blessings on your family homes and I hope to see you all in worship.
Extinguish the chalice.
Distribute the Taking It Home handout you have prepared and the Taking It Home booklets if you have prepared them. Ask the children to give these to their parents.
Thank and dismiss participants.
