Spiritual Preparation, Session 5: Home in Nature

In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program

Our material-centered, time-based lifestyle makes simplicity in living hard to imagine. Explore for yourself a time when you feel your life was simplest.

Take a piece of paper and a pencil and draw yourself at that time in your life. Stick people are fine. Draw a few of the things that you did in that simpler time of life. Draw some symbols of your feeling about that simple time in your life. Now turn the paper over and draw your life now. Draw the things that fill your days in this time in your life.

Look at each picture for several minutes. How can you take your life now and reclaim some of the simplicity of the other time of your life? Promise yourself to take one small step toward simplicity.
