Spiritual Preparation, Session 16: Resiliency (Hard Hat)

In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program

Take a moment and let your body and mind settle. If you are comfortable doing so, spend a few moments in peaceful meditation. In preparation for this session, you may wish to reflect on times when you have had to be resilient in the face of life's difficulties and stress. How naturally resilient are you? Do you have to work at it? When do you wish you could have been more resilient? Where do you, or could you, find the strength or faith to bounce or bend when you need to?

As an adult leader, your opinion may have more influence than those of participants. Therefore, your personal disclosure should not become part of the discussion unless participants ask you a question directly. In that case, be sure to preface your opinion by setting the context that each of us, adults and children, has different opinions, and yours is one among many. Then guide the conversation away from your own opinion and allow participants to reflect on their own thoughts.
