In "Windows and Mirrors," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite the group to make colorful thank-you cards for people who perform needed services in the community.
Decide with the group who they will make cards for. Refer to the list of needs and the service people who meet those needs they brainstormed in Activity 2. They might consider sending cards to the local police department, the staff of a local clinic or emergency room, your community's library staff or the fire department.
Distribute card stock and arts and crafts materials for children to share at work tables.
As they work, ask the group to think about the work the recipients of the cards do. How does it feel to acknowledge these people? At the end of the activity ask the group to offer a moment of prayer of gratitude.
