In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
This activity helps participants identify beloved community as it relates to their group.
Show participants the map and point out where each of them lives. Show the location of the congregation you all share. Engage the children to discover together:
Affirm that the beloved community is a group connected not only by the roads and activities we share but also, and more importantly, by our hearts and by the relationships we build.
This activity will unfold differently depending on whether the group lives in a concentrated area or more spread out. If your congregation serves a wide geographical area, obtain an adequate map to ensure all participants are included in the activity. If participants live very far from the congregation, talk about what reasons families might have for coming so far to be together with this faith community.
