Spiritual Preparation, Session 12: Beauty 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. Picture in your mind's eye your favorite places to play in nature when you were a child. If you did not grow up with such opportunities, choose a time from any period of your life. After you've got one or two places in mind, consider the following:

  • Where did you picture yourself?
  • What season came into your mind?
  • What made the place beautiful? Which of your senses were activated—sight, hearing, smell, touch, or taste?

Think about the idea that what we love, we protect. Allow your own sense of reverence, wonder, and awe to be present as you lead this session.
