Spiritual Preparation, Session 3: Beehive

In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program

This session will focus on beehives. Sometimes hives are portrayed as a frenzy of activity. This session, though, looks at the amazing organization of the colony of bees and how each bee plays a role in the beehive home.

Take a moment and reflect upon this faith setting. Sometimes it probably feels like a buzz of activity. Think about times when it feels like that for you. Does that feel exciting? Overwhelming? Now think about times when it feels less busy, quieter, perhaps less lively. How does that feel to you?

Children are also sensitive to the atmosphere around them. They like to know they have a place in the buzz of activity. How do you like to shape the "feel" of your meeting space? Think about moments when you have felt most at home with children—and when children seem most at home—in this faith setting. Be intentional about establishing the tone you want for this session.
