In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
As part of a multigenerational worship service or program, read or tell the story to the group. At appropriate parts of the story, show the mish-mash heart you have pieced together, perhaps, at the right times, pointing to jagged or torn areas. Read or tell the story to the group. After the story, invite the group to be silent for a moment to think about it. Then, form small, multigenerational groups and encourage each group to discuss the story, using questions such as these:
After the discussion, encourage all of the participants to create their own Mish-Mash hearts by cutting up the heart shapes and gluing together a new heart with a variety of colors and adding fabric, ribbons, or other decorative items.
After everyone finishes decorating their hearts or when time is almost up, ask if anyone would like to share what some elements on their heart mean and how they relate to any happy or sad moments in their life.
