Spiritual Preparation, Session 11: Kindness in Nature

In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program

Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for several minutes, perhaps repeating a word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day and consider:

Have you ever had a time when you felt that an animal expressed kindness to you, perhaps a dog or a cat? Reflect on the bond you felt with that animal.

In Western culture, humans tend to see ourselves as separate from the animal world. We believe our emotional and spiritual lives distinguish us from other creatures. What if that is not the case? Foster a spirit of curiosity and wondering, and allow your own sense of reverence, wonder, and awe to be present as you lead this session.
