Activity 3: Story — The Four Creations, Part Three and Honoring Air Power (8 minutes), Session 16: The Power to Make Change

In "Sing to the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Print Leader Resource 1. Practice reading the meditation aloud so you can lead it smoothly, pausing between sentences.

Description of Activity

Read or tell Part Three of the story, "The Four Creations." Invite a moment of silence. Then, say something like:

The people in this story get off track by being so focused on doing and getting and buying and trading that they forgot their creator. They forgot who they truly are. The coming of the ice forces everyone into stillness. Sometimes we need the stillness of air power to remember who we are, and who we can be. We honor air power and stillness with a meditation on our breath.

Invite the children to get comfortable, out of arms reach of each other. Read the meditation in Leader Resource 1 slowly, leaving pauses between sentences for participants to experience stillness and the power of air.
