Spiritual Preparation, Session 7: Let's Talk
In "Windows and Mirrors," a Tapestry of Faith program
Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Make yourself comfortable; light a candle to mark the time as different from your other activities. Close your eyes and breathe deeply and perhaps repeat one word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day.
Think about how you talk and how you listen when you communicate with others. You might consider:
- The gestures you use in a conversation
- A significant incident when your words or gestures were misunderstood
- An occasion when you reached across a cultural difference by using language or gestures thoughtfully.
Consider how you can share your experiences and insights with the children in the session.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
