In "Windows and Mirrors," a Tapestry of Faith program
In this activity, two or three groups of children will translate the words to "Spirit of Life" into Morse code, Pig Latin and/or (optional) ASL. To save time, invite them to translate just the first line: "Spirit of Life, come unto me."
Form the groups and distribute the Morse code and Pig Latin newsprint and the ASL chart. Indicate where you have posted the words "Spirit of Life, come unto me."
Give groups five to seven minutes. Then invite each group to share their translation with the larger group. After each demonstration, ask the audience (the other group(s)) to determine which word, gesture or sound means "life" and imitate the word.
Together, ask the entire group to create a dance using the word, gesture, and sound for "life." Dance becomes yet another means of communicating.
