In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Love is the spirit of this church,
and service its law.
This is our great covenant:
To dwell together in peace,
To seek the truth in love,
And to help one another. — James Vila Blake
Invite a participant to light the chalice. Lead the group to read aloud the Blake covenant. Say something like:
Today we will continue to explore how we covenant "to seek the truth in love."
Indicate the photos and pictures of optical illusions you have displayed. Ask volunteers to share their observations about the images and say which image is their favorite and explain why. Invite reflection with questions such as:
After everyone who wants to has shared, gather around the chalice and extinguish it together.
If you know some participants may feel uncomfortable sharing in a group, let them know as they enter the room that later they will be invited to share their responses to the optical illusions. This may help them prepare; they can also pass. You might also consider forming small groups for children to respond to the optical illusions.
